Is it even certain that Marianne is dead? Or even confirmed that she ever existed? Couldn't this simply be an entire keikaku doori by way of the Emperor's geass?

Could the entire thing have been engineered to lure out CC by presenting her with someone who was so consumed with the idea of revenge that he would turn to her, thus fulfilling the prophecies of Ragnarok or whatever was vaguely referenced in the first episode?
