Her father was a brother of Charles Crocker, one of the 'big four' California railroad barons. Aimee had a tale or two to tell. Aside from lavish parties, husbands and lovers, she travelled widely in the Far East. She tells of escaping headhunters in Borneo, poisoning in Hong Kong, and avoiding murder by servants in Shanghai. While away, she was christened Princess Palaikalani Bliss of Heaven by King David Kalakaua, the last king of Hawaii, and then Princess Galitzine when she wed her fifth and final husband, Prince Mstislav Galitzine.
