Leopold hopes to marry Alicia Coburn

May 10, 1931

Archduke Leopold of Austria hopes to marry Alicia Gibson Coburn in Paris "within the next three months," if the proper religious arrangements can be made.

Alicia Coburn is the daughter of a "well-know Canadian family," reports the Associated Press.    Leopold, 34, who has lived in New York City for several years, is not divorced from his first wife, Baroness Dagmar Nicolics-Podrinska.  He cannot remarry in the Roman Catholic Church with having obtained an annulment from Rome.

Leopold could marry in a civil ceremony, after he obtains a divorce, or marry in another church.
