Trivia section removed[edit]

"Leopold was particularly well equipped for sexual intercourse. The Duke was once taking a bath when the man washing him asked if 'His Grace would move his arm so that I can wash His Grace?' It turned out, that it wasn't his arm that was in the way at all, but, by your leave, quite a different thing.'"

At the age of nineteen, Duke Leopold Joseph married the twenty-two-year old Elisabeth of Orleans. Who, after her honeymoon, told her mother how much she was enjoying the pleasures of the marital bed. The Duke was, as Madame her mother delicately put it, 'excessively taken with this bagatelle."

I have removed the above text, which constituted a section entitled Trivia. It is unreferenced, of dubious historical value, and in its current form merely performs a prurient function. In my opinion it would only be suitable for reinclusion in article if adequate references can be cited, and significance explained.--Iacobus (talk) 01:59, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

"In 1718, Leopold and his wife visited Paris to attend the marriage of Elisabeth Charlotte's sister Marie Louise Elisabeth to the Duke of Berry, and were among the guest of the lavish banquet at the Palais du Luxembourg.[1] During the visit, Leopold, as a foreign prince, received the style of Royal Highness."

Marie Louis was her niece, daughter of her brother, and descended from Montespan.86.72.133.161 (talk) 14:59, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
