En realidad Isadora Duncan no está sepultada en este nicho. Esta bailarina estadounidense murio en Niza, Francia y fue incinerada y sus cenizas fueron colocadas en el columbario del  Cementerio del Père-Lachaise.

La muerte de Isadora fue trágica y esto contribuyó a crear el mito de la bailarina, pues no pudieron aclararse completamente los sucesos que la rodean. Murió en un accidente automovilístico en Niza, el 14 de septiembre de 1927, ahorcada por su propia chalina, cuando se enredó en la rueda del automóvil deportivo de un mecánico italiano Benoit Falchetto.

Gran misterio de este cementerio es esta inscripción.

Se cree que la inscripción en este nicho es un homenaje de algún admirador mexicano. La leyenda popular cuenta que  pudo ser el Presidente Plutarco Elias Calles quien mandó inscribir su nombre en el nicho debido a la gran admración que sentía por ella y la pena que sintió al saber su muerte.

Isadora Duncan jamas estuvo en suelo mexicano.

Life Timeline of Isadora Duncan

Isadora Duncan was born in 1878
Isadora Duncan was 5 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
