Princess Vittoria Ruspoli to marry

October 1912

Princess Vittoria Ruspoli is engaged to be married, according to an announcement in Paris. The Princess, whose mother is the former Josephine Curtiss of New York, is to marry 20-year-old Vicomte Roger de Dampierre, second son of the Duke of San Lorenzo.
Vittoria's father, Don Emanuel Ruspoli, Prince di Poggia-Susua, died in 1899, when Vittoria was seven-years-old. Josephine was his third wife.
The head of the de Dampierre family is not the Duke of San Lorenzo, but the Marquess de Dampierre.
