the Duke d'Abruzzi not engaged to American

March 16, 1906

The Italian court today issued an official denial of an engagement between the Duke of the Abruzzi, a cousin of King Victor Emanuele, and Miss Katherine Elkins, daughter of Senator Elkins of West Virginia.

The New York Times reports that the Duke plans to be in Rome on March 28 to attend a lecture by the Prince of Monaco on oceanography.  He is now the commander of the Regina Elena, a battleship, and is expected to be promoted to Rear Admiral.
