American Women and Royal Marriages

American Women and Royal Marriages

Plan to join members and friends of Ocean County Historical Society on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 2:00 PM for a fun and informative afternoon learning about the “dollar princesses” of the Gilded Age when wealthy American heiresses married titled, but poor, European nobility.

Melissa Ziobro, Specialist Professor of Public History at Monmouth University, will present the program American Women and Royal Marriages:  New Jersey’s Real-Life “Lady Coras”, telling us about the hundreds of these marriages, including brides with roots in New Jersey.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.  Light refreshments will be served. For reservations, call 732-341-1880.
