Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, met Olivia Langdon in 1867. They were introduced by her brother.

The couple's first date was to hear a reading by Charles Dickens in New York City.

They were married on Feb. 2, 1870.

The Clemens family lived in Europe for four years starting in 1891. Clemens also did a European lecture tour from 1895-1896.

In 1903, Olivia's doctors advised her to take up residence in the warm climate of Italy, prompting the Clemens family to move to a villa outside Florence. She died June 1904.
