Eva Anna Paula Hitler (née Braun; 6 February 1912 – 30 April 1945) was the longtime companion of Adolf Hitler and, for less than 40 hours, his wife. Braun met Hitler in Munich when she was 17 years old, while she was working as an assistant and model for his personal photographer, and began seeing him often about two years later. She attempted suicide twice during their early relationship. By 1936, she was a part of his household at the Berghof near Berchtesgaden and lived a sheltered life throughout World War II. Braun was a photographer, and many of the surviving colour photographs and films of Hitler were taken by her. She was a key figure within Hitler's inner social circle, but did not attend public events with him until mid-1944, when her sister Gretl married Hermann Fegelein, the SS liaison officer on his staff..

As the Third Reich collapsed towards the end of the war, Braun swore loyalty to Hitler and went to Berlin to be by his side in the heavily reinforced Führerbunker beneath the Reich Chancellery. As Red Army troops fought their way into the neighbourhood on 29 April 1945, she married Hitler during a brief civil ceremony; she was 33 and he was 56. Less than 40 hours later, they committed suicide together in a sitting room of the bunker, she by biting into a capsule of cyanide..Braun was very fond of her two Scottish Terrier dogs named Negus and Stasi and they feature in her home movies. She usually kept them away from Hitler's German Shepherd, Blondi. Blondi was killed by one of the entourage on 29 April 1945 when Hitler ordered that one of the cyanide capsules obtained for Braun and Hitler's suicide the next day be tested on the dog. Braun's dogs and Blondi's puppies were shot by Hitler's dog handler, Fritz Tornow, on 30 April...
1945 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A lot of what you post up here is disputed in the "Grey Wolf" book which suggests that Hitler's hired double, Gustav Weber carried out his role to the bitter end in the bunker, along with an Eva double, meanwhile Adolph, Eva and the dog Blondi were en route to Argentina via U-Boat where they lived happily ever after ( along with several thousand other Nazis of varying ranks) until 1962 courtesy of the Fascist and gold greedy Eva Peron and the contented acquiescence of Churchill, Hoover, Roosevelt and Stalin. The bone remains discovered from the grave in the Berlin bunker Chancellory gardens have never been successfully identified as those of Adolph Hitler or Eva Braun.
