Elvis Presley was an undeniable icon in his day, and it’s no secret he made the ladies go wild. And while women around the world wanted to kiss The King, Elvis only really had eyes for wife Priscilla Presley, née Beaulieu.
Elvis was 25 when he met a then 14-year-old Priscilla while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army. They were inseparable until his tour ended in 1960. Though the couple didn’t see each other for two years, the rocker was able to convince her parents to let her move to Memphis to be with him in 1963. Not long after she began living with him at Graceland.
Elvis and Lisa Marie were engaged on Christmas Eve, 1966, and wed in Las Vegas the next May. The couple welcomed Elvis’ only child, Lisa Marie, in 1968. While they were the image of an ideal couple in public, the relationship began to unravel in the early 70s amid mutual infidelity. They divorced in 1973 and while Elvis dated until his 1977 death, he never. remarried.
Though Lisa Marie was only 9 when her father died, his legacy lived on with the singer-songwriter. Lisa Marie raised Elvis grandchildren, actress Riley Keough, late son Benjamin Keough, who passed away in 2020, and twins Finley and Harper Lockwood. Tragically, she died at the age of 54 on Jan. 12, 2023, after suffering cardiac arrest.
