Continuing my look through the British newspapers of 1914, this week I have chosen the Dundee Evening Telegraph and Post (January 9th, 1914). The article does not, however, focus on developments in Dundee, but events in far-off Berlin. You might think that we are beginning to see the first indications of those international events that would stain the year for the microscope of history : but no, it is a wedding we are focusing on, what the paper calls "The Fashionable Anglo-German Wedding". The participants are fascinating in their own right : the Hon John Freeman-Mitford was English aristocracy (and Uncle to the famous Mitford girls) and his bride Fraulein Marie Von Friedlander-Fuld was the German Coal King's daughter. At least we can content ourselves with the thought that Anglo-German relations started the year on a high note. But that note soon went sour : by June that year Princess Coal was suing for divorce and the marriage ended well before the lights went out all over Europe.
