Mata Hari was the stage name of a popular erotic dancer who thrilled audiences in the theaters of Paris and other European cities in the early years of the 20th century. She was also a high class prostitute, and her clients included royal princes, government ministers, senior military officers, diplomats and wealthy businessmen.
During the First World War, the chief of the French Secret Service, Captain Georges Ladoux, offered to employ Mata Hari as a spy, and she accepted this offer, little suspecting that Ladoux intended to betray her in order to further his own career.
Within less than twelve months after her recruitment in 1916, Ladoux ordered her arrest on charges of being a double agent in the employ of Germany. Mata Hari was convicted by a French military court after a two day trial, and executed by a firing squad on 15th October 1917.
Mata Hari was almost certainly innocent of the charges against her, and her wrongful conviction and execution cannot be described as anything other than legalized murder!
