It was the year 1959 when the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, met young Priscilla Beaulieu while he was stationed in Germany during his military service. She was just 14, and he was 24, but Elvis decided he had found his muse. They maintained a long-distance relationship as Elvis returned to the United States, and Priscilla eventually joined him in Memphis. Finally, on May 1, 1967, Elvis and Priscilla exchanged vows in an intimate and secretive ceremony at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas when she was just 21 years old. Priscilla became Mrs. Presley, and together they welcomed their daughter, Lisa Marie, into the world.
