Your history lesson for this morning, lol

From wikipedia:

"In January 1474, when Bianca was not quite two years old, she married her first cousin Philibert I, Duke of Savoy (7 August 1465- 22 April 1482), the son of her uncle Amadeus IX of Savoy, and Yolande of France.[1]Duke Philibert died in the spring of 1482, leaving Bianca a widow at the age of ten."

I think someone made a typo with her age.

This is just plain insanity. The girl wasn't even close to puberty yet they married her off. Someone must have been desperate for a wife.
