Daisy McLintock Posted November 30, 2008 Share Posted November 30, 2008 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.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. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
