Ivanka is Donald Trump's second-born child. (

This photograph seems to show a close father-daughter relationship between Donald Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, in her teenage years. In reality, Ivanka has been open about how absent her father was during her childhood. A poor little rich girl, Ivanka was raised by a series of nannies and prestigious schools. She was just 11 when she learned from news reports that her father was having an affair with a model named Marla Maples. It wasn’t until she was an adult and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in economics that she grew closer to her famous father.

The identity of the woman in this photo from 1899 is unknown, but perhaps it was the photographer's daughter. (pinterest)

French businessman and industrialist Felix Thiollier didn’t make a living taking photographs, at least not at first. Photography was merely a hobby for him. As an art collector, Thiollier had an artistic eye and saw the world through the lens of an artist. He hobnobbed with noted photographers of the day including Paul Borel, Jean-Paul Laurens, and Francois Guiguet. Bolstered by their feedback, Thiollier took an early retirement to pursue his personal interests in art, photography, and archeology. As for this famous photograph, which Thiollier titled “The Horse Trainer”, Thiollier never identified the woman in the image, but experts believe it may have been one of his daughters.
