Bavarian royal marriage annulled

June 28, 1913

The marriage of Archduchess Isabella of Austria and Prince Georg of Bavaria has been annulled by the Pope, according to a cable sent to the Los Angeles Times.

The Archduchess left her marital home only three days after the wedding ceremony.  She is now living in a convent, which is in "compliance with the Vatican's decree that she should do this, otherwise her marriage would not have been annulled."

She plans to study nursing after she leaves the convent.
