Princess Georg seeks divorce

October 1, 1912

Prince and Princess Georg of Bavaria have been "unable to handle the breach", according to telegrams from Munich to the New York Times.  Their household has been "dissolved," and "preliminary steps have been taken: to obtain an annulment of the marriage.

Questions of precedence at the Bavarian court are not the reason for the breakdown of the marriage.  Princess Georg was born Archduchess Isabella of Austria.  The breakdown is due entirely to the Princess' "unconquerable dislike" of her husband.

Prince Georg is a grandson of the Prince Regent of Bavaria.
