King Ferdinand plays matchmaker

March 15, 1927

King Ferdinand of Romania will "use his forthcoming visit to Southern Italy to recuperate from his illness" to discuss a "possible engagement" between his youngest daughter, Princess Ileana and Crown Prince Umberto of Italy, reports the Associated Press.

The King will stop in Rome for a meeting with the Crown Prince's parents.

Rumors of a possible marriage between 18-year-old Princess Ileana and the 22-year old Umberto have been circulating for some time.
