Adele Juana Maria Patti, called Adelina, was the daughter of Caterina Barili-Patti and Salvatore Patti. She became one of the most famous sopranos of her time. Patti married three times; first with Henri de Roger de Cahusac, marquess of Caux. They divorced in 1885. Then, she married the tenor Ernesto Nicolini in 1886; the marriage lasted until his death. Patti's last marriage was to baron Rolf Cederstrom, a Swedish aristocrat. She had no children and settled with the baron in Swansea Valley in south Wales, after her retirement, where she purchased, Craig-y-Nos Castle.
