Horn had three brothers: Manfred, Alfred, and Werner. Horn's mother's friend's husband Emil was the founder of the Bremen Zoo, which gave Horn access to exotic animals from the age of The owner of the Astoria Theatre in Bremen saw Fischbacher and Horn's act aboard a Caribbean cruise ship and recruited the duo to perform at her nightclub.
This launched a career for the pair on the European nightclub circuit, and they began to perform with tigers. They spent some time in Puerto Rico and may have purchased property there.
During a period of their careers, Fischbacher and Horn were romantically involved, though they avoided discussion of their private lives.
During a show at the Mirage on Horn's birthday on October 3, , a 7-year-old white tiger named Montecore attacked Horn. As part of the act, but veering off script, Horn held his microphone to Montecore's mouth and told him to say "hello" to the audience.
Montecore responded by biting Horn's sleeve. Horn swatted the tiger and barked "release! Suffering from dizziness, Horn tripped and fell onto his back, and Montecore moved to stand over him.
As standby trainers rushed in from offstage to assist, Montecore bit into Horn's neck and dragged him offstage.
Trainers got the tiger to release Horn by spraying him with CO 2 fire extinguisher canisters, the last resort available.
The attack severed Horn's spine, resulted in massive blood loss, and severely injured other parts of his body, permanently impairing his motor and verbal abilities.
He also had a stroke either before or after Montecore dragged him offstage. While being taken to the hospital, Horn stated, "Montecore is a great cat.
Make sure no harm comes to Montecore. Trainer Chris Lawrence later contradicted Fischbacher and Horn's explanations for why the tiger attacked Horn, alleging it was due to Horn's mishandling of Montecore.
The duo dismissed Lawrence's claims, stating he "had problems with his life anyway. In August , their act became the basis for Father of the Pride.
Right before its release, the series was almost cancelled until Fischbacher and Horn urged NBC to continue production after Horn's condition improved after the attack by Montecore in October By March , Horn was talking and walking, with assistance from Fischbacher, and appeared on Pat O'Brien 's television news program The Insider to discuss his daily rehabilitation.
In February , the duo staged a final appearance with Montecore as a benefit for the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute though Chris Lawrence had stated this performance involved a different tiger.
On April 23, , Fischbacher and Horn retired from show business. Roy Horn remained partially paralyzed from a tiger attack , which damaged his windpipe and an artery which carries blood to his brain.
The reason behind the attack was never officially solved, according to USA Today. The couple contends Montecore the tiger which is also spelled Mantecore was reacting to Horn suffering a mini-stroke onstage and dragged him to an area where paramedics could treat him.
The men had a long history together. They met early in life on a luxury liner, TS Bremen, where they both worked. Siegfried started performing magic acts on the ship after trying out his tricks for the crew.
He met Roy, who had experience with exotic animals, and asked him to join him in his performances. You can read more about their backgrounds here.

By Alyssa Choiniere. Updated May 9, at am. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend daily life for millions of people worldwide, Covid has claimed another beloved celebrity.
There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried. Prior to Horn's diagnosis and subsequent death, the performers issued a statement to fans regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
We can't wait until it is possible for all of us to hug each other safely again. Despite Siegfried Fischbacher's insistence that his act would not exist without Roy Horn, the two actually met upon the TS Bremen luxury cruise liner as solo performers.
And afterward, I wanted to know, find out how he liked it — 'The Great Siegfried '— what a great performance I gave, and he was not very impressed.
