Alexander III of Scotland and Yolande of Dreux were married on the 15th of October 1285 and he died in March 1286.

Must be one of the shortest Scottish royal marriages after James V and Madeleine de France.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

One interesting example:

Giangiorgio Sebastiano, Margrave of Monferrato married Princess Giulia of Naples.

The wedding took place on April 29, 1533. The next day, April 30, 1533, the Margrave died while consummating the marriage without having left a legitimate male offspring.

There is also one more example. Not exactly royal, but royalty related.

Christine Sophie von Gähler, née von Ahlefeldt (1745-1792) was main figure at Danish Court and lady in waiting to Queen Caroline Mathilde of Denmark, nee Princess of Great Britain.

On 18th of July 1792 she contracted her second marriage to Count Carl Alexander von der Goltz. Unfortunately, she died the same day during her wedding night. So, her second marriage lasted just FEW HOURS.

Her other royal connection to Great Britain and Denmark:

Christine Sophie von Gähler was daughter in law of Caspar von Gähler (1683-1759), who is direct ancestor of Danish born Birgitte Eva van Deurs, current Duchess of Gloucester.
