love in those days, especially between royals and nobles was different. maybe george saw her and thought she was beautiful (many did, but that's beyond me) and thought himself in love. think about the fact that they lived in different countries, they probably saw each other once a year or something. he didn't have time to know her before marrying her

Elisabetta had that kind of sad beauty that George loved. In fact he had asked her to marry her many times, until she finally said yes.  :(

Unfortunate, isn't it? To want something so badly and finally get it only to have it be exactly the opposite of what you hoped for--namely a happy marriage to a person who loved you. Poor man.  :(

Elisabetta did try to be a "good" wife for awhile, but George was away at war so much. The family ( immediate one)was not friendly either, they lapse into Greek whenever she tried to join in their conversation.  :(

I think Ileana was the most well rounded beauty of Missy's three daughters.  :)
