No engagement for King Manoel

March 19, 1912

The family of Princess Elisabeth of Braganza are denying reports that she is engaged to marry exiled King Manoel II of Portugal.

The 18-year-old princess is finishing her education in a convent.  She is the daughter of Dom Miguel, who, according to a Marconi transatlantic wireless telegraph to the New York Times, is currently traveling with other members of his family.
