American Royal Wedding - Alice Roosevelt

 Alice Lee Roosevelt was the daughter of former president Theodore Roosevelt.  Alice was born on February 12, 1884.  She was very self assured and outspoken for a woman of those times.  Alice also had a great sense of humor.  Her outgoing personality endeared many and she was known as Princess Alice. 

In 1906 Alice Roosevelt married Nicholas Longworth.    The marriage was shakey almost from the start.  

Nicholas Longworth. Alice Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt.

By Alice's own admission her daughter's biological father was the result of an ongoing affair that she had with a senator.  Nicholas Longworth had numerous affairs while they were married.   
On February 20, 1980 Alice Roosevelt Longworth passed away at the age of 96.
