   Della Duck


Born ca. 1920 as one of two twins. Daughter of $crooge McDuck's sister Hortense McDuck and Quackmore Duck, son of Elvira "Grandma" Duck and her husband Humperdink Duck. Della Duck thus is a descendant from both the Clan McDuck and the Coots.

In 1930 or some time later, she left Duckburg, probably together with her parents. In a young age (around 18-20 years) she married a brother of Daisy Duck with whom she got the triplets Huey, Dewey and Louie. The kids showed a really wild behaviour and when they finally blown a firecracker underneath their fathers chair (and thus sending him to hospital) Della sent them to her brother Donald who was by then living in Duckburg.
