mordake

Edward Mordrake (sometimes written Edward Mordake) is claimed to be a 19th century heir to one of the peerages in England who had an extra face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23.

The Man With Two Faces – Angel And A Devil– Edward Mordake (sometimes spelled Edward Mordrake) was an heir to an English peerage who reportedly had an extra face on the back of his head. The duplicate face could neither eat nor speak out loud but was seen to “smile and sneer while Mordake was weeping.” Mordake reportedly begged doctors to have his “Demon face” removed, claiming that it whispered…

Edward Mordake (England)

Edward Mordake (or Mordrake) allegedly lived in the 19th century and was said be have been a member of one of England’s most prestigious families. He was considered a bright, charming and handsome young man - at least when he was viewed from the front. You see, Edward was born with an odd deformity: he had an extra face on the back of his head.

Some sources say that his second face was that of a beautiful girl, which would be impossible since all parasitic twins are of the same sex. The book Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine paradoxically states that it was ‘lovely as a dream, hideous as a devil’. It’s said that this face possessed its own intelligence and was quite malignant in its intentions. According to legend its eyes would follow spectators and its lips would ‘gibber’ relentlessly and silently. No voice was ever audible, but Edward swore that he was often kept awake by the hateful whispers of his ‘evil twin’ and that it talked to him forever about ‘things from hell’. Worst of all, it supposedly smiled and sneered as Edward wept over his condition.

Edward begged doctors to remove his extra face but surgeons refused, insisting that it was too risky. Eventually, a desperate Edward committed suicide at the age of twenty-three. The method of his death depends on who’s telling the tale. Sometimes he ends his misery via poison, other times he puts a bullet ‘between the eyes of his devil-twin’. In any case, he leaves a suicide note behind that requests the demon face be destroyed before his burial ‘lest it continues its dreadful whisperings in my grave.’

But don’t let this disturbing tale trouble you too much. Modern researchers have yet to find any solid evidence that Edward - let alone his evil other half - ever existed.
