Remembering Elvis Presley Part 2

The love story of Elvis and Priscilla is one of the greatest in history. A love that survived the last 18 years of his life. Even though they divorced their love was still strong. They are soul mates in ever sense of the word. Here is how their love story unfolded.

Priscilla Beaulieu met Elvis Presley while he was stationed in Germany with the United States Army. Priscilla‘s father was their with Air Force. Priscilla was 14 years old when she met Elvis in Wiesbaden. She met Elvis in 1959. It wasn’t until 1963 that Priscilla moved to Memphis, Tennessee and into Graceland with Elvis. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Aladdin Hotel. And 9 months later, daughter Lisa Marie was born on February 1, 1968. The couple separated on February 23, 1972 and were divorced October 9, 1973. Priscilla and Elvis remained on good terms for their daughter and when Elvis died it hit Priscilla hard. She soon took over the care of Graceland and saved Elvis’ legacy from no return. She has made the Elvis name and Graceland what it is today.

Please enjoy the wonderful pictures of Elvis and Priscilla through out their time together. And tomorrow their daughter, Lisa Marie will be the star of the continuing special on Elvis.
