The Transatlantic Marriage Bureau : Husband Hunting in the Gilded Age: How Amrerican Heiresses Conquered the Aristorcracy

On 6 November 1895 Consuelo Vanderbilt married Charles Spencer-Churchill, 9th Duke of Marlborough. Though the preceding months had included spurned loves, unexpected deaths, scandal and illicit affairs, the wedding was the crowning moment for the unofficial marriage brokers, Lady Minnie Paget and Consuelo Yzanga, Dowager Duchess of Manchester, the original buccaneers who had instructed, cajoled and manipulated wealthy young heiresses into making the perfect match. Fame, money, power, prestige, perhaps even love - these were some of the reasons for the marriages that took place between wealthy American heiresses and the English aristocracy in 1895.
