Does such a thing exist? Can 12 of the most famous couples in history teach us anything about how to nurture and enjoy the perfect relationship? Unfortunately we were unable to contact any of the folks in this list for comment, largely on of them all being dead, and so instead we have simply explored the ups and downs of their relationships in order to discover what links them. Perhaps, by paying a visit to loves long past, we can learn how to build successful relationships in the present.
Before they were immortalised with their induction into Cockney rhyming slang, Adam and Eve were, according to the Bible, the first man and woman in existence. Has there ever been such a delightfully juicy love story? The tale of Mark Antony and Cleopatra has it all — passion, infidelity, political intrigue, and lo of stabbing.
The full extent of their love affair is, as was seemingly everything in Ancient Rome, too convoluted to explain without several charts, a stack of character cards, and a laser pointer. Instead, we shall summarise thusly:. Cleopatra had an affair with Ceasar, until he got stabbed to bits. Cleo then fell in love with Antony. His wife found out, but then she died. Antony married someone else for political reasons, Cleo got wind of this while pregnant by Antony but forgave him. War broke out in the Empire, Antony sided with Cleopatra, was misinformed she had died, so took his own life in despair.
Cleo heard this and killed herself too, via cobra bite. And you think your love life is messy. Abelard, a philosopher, and Heloise, a bright young student, tumble helplessly into a forbidden romance in 12 th century Paris: the seminal love story. Catherine Parr takes the top spot over the mad-for-divorcing king for the simple fact that, unlike pretty much all of her predecessors, she got off scot free. Plus, she gets bonus points for outliving three successive husbands. Although Western society may not instantly recall Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal as one of the most famous couples in history, their whirlwind romance is incredibly well known in India.
In , the young prince Jahan was wandering through a marketplace when he first glimpsed the daughter of a noble family, Mumtaz Mahal, and fell instantly and irrevocably in love, as people in ye olden days tended to do. They were betrothed for five years, and married in Shah did amass two or three other wives during this period, but of all his wives, he only loved Mumtaz; the other marriages were political.
The royal sweethearts were much loved by the people of the Mughal Empire, and when, 24 years and 14 fourteen! In the case of Napoleon and Josephine, Emperor and Empress of France in the early nineteenth century, it was less of an April shower of adultery and more of a tropical deluge. However, while Napoleon was away conquering Italy and whatnot, Josephine began an affair with a handsome young lieutenant; the brilliantly-named Hippolyte. Napoleon was understandably peeved when he caught wind of the affair, and subsequently had a few of his own, and eventually remarried.
Before he bestowed his name upon the popular piercing, Prince Albert was married to Queen Victoria for 21 years. After centuries of royals running amok, having affairs and being generally unpresentable, Queen Victoria was the monarch to bring some respectability back to Buckingham Palace.
Together, Victoria and Albert projected an image of happy coupledom that the public could aspire to, and the royals became well respected and loved once more. When Albert passed away, Queen Victoria embraced her inner goth and wore black for the next 40 years. As many EliteSingles articles have ly suggested , sharing a hobby with your lover is a fantastic way to feel close and connected. And if that shared passion happens to be revolutionising the world of medicine, winning two Nobel prizes, and making huge advances in cancer treatment?
All the better. Alice B Tolkas met Stein on the very first day she arrived in Paris from America, and the two shacked up more or less immediately. Who knew it could be so simple? Bonnie and Clyde are the only couple on this list to have achieved that most aspired-to romantic feat. Perhaps we should avoid romanticising them too much, because their gang did kill quite a lot of people. Regardless, the beautiful young lovers on the run from the law continue to inspire almost a century later.
Capa and Taro met in Paris, where they had both moved to flee the rise of fascism, and soon fell in love. Sharing a passion for photography and a thirst for adventure, the pair embarked on an illustrious career together as war photographers. Travelling across Europe together, their love affair only lasted for two years, but together they gained a reputation as two of the greatest war photographers of all time.
Their love was tragically short lived: they both died young, one of the hazards of sprinting around warzones with a camera. Long before they would alter history as the leaders the civil rights movement, Martin Luther King Jr and Coretta Scott King met on their university campus. After an hour, my mind was made up. Apparently not one for taking it slow, Dr King told Coretta in their first conversation that he wanted to marry her.
As most people might do when proposed to by a stranger, Coretta gently rebuked Dr King, saying she hardly knew him. However, the two would tie the knot a year later. The tumultuous period of the civil rights movement brought many challenges for the couple, not least an FBI audio recording of Dr King allegedly committing adultery, as part of a government smear campaign.
It is unknown whether the tape was fabricated, and despite this the couple maintained a close, loving bond. Sometimes, there are couples who just seem destined for each other. They were both married at the time, and a smitten Cash attempted to woo June over the subsequent years, even as it led to the collapse of his own marriage. Cash proposed live onstage in , and June said yes duh.
After 45 years married, Johnny and June passed away just 3 months apart; a fitting and romantic end for an iconic musical duo, and one of the most famous couples in history.
