Short biography
The beautiful heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt was named in honor of her godmother, the socialite (and Duchess of Manchester) Maria Consuelo Yznaga del Valle. In 1895, she married in a spectacular wedding Charles Spencer-Churchill, 9th Duke of Marlborough. However, the marriage was unhappy and the couple divorced in 1921. Consuelo and Marlborough's union was seen as the high point of a trend in the late Victorian era of relatively poor British aristocrats marrying wealthy American girls.
