While in Germany, he first met 14-year-old Priscilla who later became his wife and biggest supporter, even after his death.
A chance encounter where Elvis met Priscilla for the first time.
While serving in the military (and somehow continuing to lead the charts with unreleased music), Elvis was sent to Germany in 1958. A year later, he met Priscilla Beaulieu during a party at a friend’s house. Priscilla was living there with her family after her stepfather was flown there by the US Air Force. The “Jailhouse Rock” singer soon became smitten with her and the two were inseparable during his entire stay in Germany.
Their new, young romance took a sudden turn when Elvis eventually left Germany in 1960. After the media stalked (pun intended) to talk about their brief affair, Priscilla heard rumors about the singer’s affair with actress Nancy Sinatra and thought she’d never talk to Elvis again.
To Priscilla’s surprise, even after returning to the United States, Elvis made sure to keep in touch. In the end, Priscilla’s parents agreed to let her visit the king for two weeks under some very strict rules. After some persuasion, those two weeks turned into Priscilla slowly moving to Elvis’ property in Memphis, Graceland.
The couple was completely married from a non-traditional marriage.
After years of living in Graceland, keeping up with the rock-star lifestyle and rumors swirling around relationships with Hollywood stars, Elvis proposed to Priscilla just before Christmas 1966. Elvis, 32, and Priscilla, 22, tied the knot in Las Vegas in May 1967.

during filming Live a little, love a little In 1968, Elvis was long gone and Priscilla decided to take private dance lessons. She began a brief affair with her mentor, and in her book she admitted remorse, saying, “I came out of it realizing I needed more from my relationship with Elvis.”
From a fan’s point of view, the couple’s marriage seemed happy, but as Elvis’ career continued to rise (although his health continued to decline), Priscilla and Lisa were left alone at Graceland. After endless rumors with his co-stars, the two decided to divorce in 1973. After eight years of marriage, Priscilla and Elvis remained close and even kept each other while leaving the courtroom after their divorce was finalized.
