Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–1767)


Lost his first wife in childbirth. Friends had to organize a fund raiser to get Telemann out debt after the gambling habit of his second wife (whom he married when he was 33 and she was just 16) threatened to ruin him. They separated when she left him for another man, but never divorced. She joined a convent, and outlived him by 17 years. See more trivia »
