Who is This Historical Royal Bride?

I apologize for being so vague with the details, but I was reading a Wikipedia article about a young, royal couple and didn't bookmark it correctly. Now I can't stop thinking about the story, and it's driving me crazy!

It pertained to a duke or king who fell in love with a young girl (aged 12-14). She was ill, and therefore her father (and the young man's retinue) encouraged him to look elsewhere, but he was in love with the girl and wed her anyway. She died shortly after their marriage (fever? pneumonia?) in his castle, and he was understandably heartbroken. I do not think he remarried.

I'm assuming it was around the medieval area, but could have been slightly later.

Does this ring a bell to anyone? I would love to identify the girl.

Thank you!

Possibly Princess Madeleine of France , one of King Francis I 's daughters ?

She lived from 1520 to 1537, she suffered from tuberculosis and married King James V of Scotland (who had asked repeatedly for her hand) only to die six months later aged 17.

Here is her Wikipedia's page : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madeleine_of_Valois
