When a member of a royal family marries, it is usually ideal to find their spouse from a different royal family, or at least another family with a high status. Marrying a commoner was frowned upon. Their low blood would do injustice and lower the quality of the royal blood they were marrying into. We know today that this practise is generally more acceptable; indeed, the blue blooded Prince William married Kate Middleton, who was of a humble birth. This marriage was met with widespread, international...
