But actually not everything is as terrible as it is possible to think. There are twins who are quite happy and happy with the fate. Before you Siamese twins at whom everything has developed in life well!
Chiang and Ang were born on May 11, 1811 in Siam, in the territory of modern Thailand. After their birth of accrete twins have begun to call Siamese. By the way, the local king has been so struck with the birth of brothers Banker that has ordered to kill immediately twins not to draw a trouble upon the state. But mother of boys has opposed this decision, and they were left in live.
It is necessary to recognize that the medicine of the 19th century was insufficiently developed to divide twins: they were torakopaga, that is grown together in a thorax therefore there was a danger to injure heart. As a result Chiang and Ang had to get used that they together forever.
Later the British businessman Robert Hunter has paid attention to already grown up boys. He has suggested Chiang and Ang to act in his circus, showing the body and its abilities. It was the big risk, but Hunter was the honest person: when brothers were 21 years old, their contract has ended, and on the account of twins there was a considerable state.
After a while Chiang and Ang have moved to the USA, have taken a surname Banker, have concluded the contract with the well-known circus of Phineas Barnum and have bought a farm. On April 13, 1843 the double wedding was held: Chiang and Ang married two sisters — Adelaide and Sara Ann Eyts. In these marriages at Chiang 10 children, and at Ang — 11 were born.
Brothers lived on the farm in a circle of the loving family up to death in 1874: Chiang has got sick with pneumonia and has died, in several hours also Ang has died. m was for 63 years.

Roza's parents and Zhozefy weren't glad to appearance of girls twins, and even thought to starve babies. It is unknown for what reason they have changed the mind, but Roza and Joseph have grown and have begun to study together with ordinary children. Sisters played a violin and a harp and also danced, and everyone with the partner. And then Roza has fallen in love with the German officer.
Roza with the officer had intense relations, about any intimate relationships couldn't be and speeches (sisters had one genitalia for two). After Joseph has conceded and I have allowed the sister to reunite with the beloved that has led to unexpected consequences — the Rose has become pregnant. Newborn Franz was absolutely healthy kid whom sisters have brought up together. The father of the kid, unfortunately, has died in the war.

Sisters in 1922 have died: Joseph has ached with jaundice, and doctors have offered Roza division to save at least her. The rose has refused. "If Joseph dies, I want to die too" — she has told.
Black sisters Millie and Christina were lucky less than the others: the twins who have grown together with backs and a basin were born in family of slaves in northern California. 8-month-old babies the owner has sold together with mother, but the new owner has at once resold twins in circus of freaks. From where girls were soon kidnapped and only in 3 years they were found in England and returned to the USA.
Then their owner has decided that accrete twins in itself aren't so interesting to public, and has begun to train girls in singing. So Millie and Christina gradually realized the talents — girls really perfectly sang.
After the death of the owner of the slave have got to his son Joseph who has thought up to sisters a new legend: Millie and Christina became Millie-Christina, one girl with two heads, four hands and four legs. Quite so he also announced on their representations, but admirers appreciated girls not their physical features, and incomparable talent. "A two-headed nightingale" — so called Millie and Christina. Later they have learned to play musical instruments and even to dance.
