The Brothers Magri

Count-magri[1]

The Magri brothers were a pair of Italian performing little people of the 19th century. Count Primo Magri, a.k.a Count Rosebud (1849-1920) was the 2 ft, 8 in. second husband of Lavinia Warren. His brother, whose name was either Giuseppi or Ernesto (both were given) was billed both as Baron Magri and Baron Littlefinger. Count Primo and Warren were to tour the world for a number of years, eventually settling down to run a roadside tourist attraction in her native Middleborough, Massachusetts.
