Description

Alexine Tinne was a Dutch heiress who won recognition as an explorer by her journeys with her mother, Harriet, in the Sudan. She was murdered by Tuaregs on a journey to reach Central Africa from the North.

a Dutch explorer in Africa and the first European woman to attempt to cross the Sahara. After several expeditions, in the early morning of 1 August on the route from Murzuk to Ghat she was murdered, together with two Dutch sailors in her party, allegedly by Tuareg in league with her escort. According to the statements, given at the trial in Tripoli in December 1869/January 1870, two blows of a sword (one in her neck, one on one of her hands) made her collapse. The savages left her to bleed to death. Her body was never found. It was thought that much of her irreplaceable ethnographic collections had been destroyed during WWII, but recent research has found that much survived the Blitzkrieg on Liverpool and post war fires at The Hague.
