Princess Eudoxia engaged

October 6, 1930

Although the focus is on her brother, King Boris III's impending wedding to Princess Giovanna of Italy,  Princess Eudoxia has become engaged, according to the Associated Press.

The reports of the engagement are said to be unofficial, however.  The 32-year-old princess is said to be engaged to HRH Prince Aimone of Savoy, Duke of Spoleto.  The 30-year-old prince is the younger son of the Duke and Duchess of Aosta.

The prince, an archaeologist, is presently in a hospital, as he broke a leg "received while automobile racing."

The King and Princess Giovanna await word from the Vatican regarding a dispensation for their marriage.  King Boris is Orthodox, while Princess Giovanna is a Roman Catholic.
