Uncustomary for royals and nobility of the time – and even for many couples today – Queen Victoria actually proposed to her own husband! An amazing testament to what was truly a genuine marriage out of love, in a time when the vast majority married out of political and financial necessity. As mentioned previously, Victoria was deeply in love with Albert and, upon their marriage, wrote in her diary that she was truly happy for the first time in her life.
In fact, she loved him so much that she even proposed to him! (4/20)
