The voluminous correspondence between the influential English poets Robert Browning (1812-1889) and Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) led to their eventual marriage in 1846. Elizabeth Barrett Browning was disinherited because her father disapproved of the marriage, an influence on the couple's move to Italy where Elizabeth remained for the remainder of her life. She had the habit of calling herself "Elizabeth Barrett Barrett".
