* Most of the couples from ''Manga/ABridesStory'' seem to be in happily arranged marriages, though it's implied that this is not the case for all tribes and such marriages require time and dedication to make them work.



* A good example exists in ''Manga/TheWallflower'' in local bishonen lady killer Ranmaru whose wealthy parents set him up in an arranged marriage. He initially tries to get out of it by making the bride to be, Tamao, hate him. Though he could easily just break off the engagement himself, its pretty clear he has no intention of doing so and as the story progresses it seems he really does develop genuine feelings for her.

** Perhaps their most famous child was their fifth, Catalina--known to history as Catherine of Aragon. Betrothed to the English heir Arthur, Prince of Wales, he died shortly after the wedding. However, his younger brother, the new heir [[UsefulNotes/HenryVIII Henry]], was a well-educated and boisterous-but-goodhearted young man whom the English court (after some heming and hawing) decided it would be best if he married his brother's widow. The marriage was ''very'' happy for the better part of its 24-year existence (although not happy enough to keep Henry from taking mistresses)--but of course, we all know how it ended...

* At least three four of the children of the ''Reyes Católicos''' children Católicos'' (Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabel I of Castile), the first rulers of united Spain, had this:marriages like this--with the twist that it never ended well:



** Juana, their third child, married Philip the Handsome, Duke of Burgundy, through the same alliance that married Juan and Margaret. The marriage turned out this way... too much. They literally fell in love at first sight, and they begged to have the marriage formalized the day they met so they could get it on right away. They had six children (including [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Roman Emperor]] [[HabsburgMonarchy Charles V]]). Eventually, things happened, [[{{Yandere}} Joanna started to get jealous]], and eventually the jealousy had some kind of party in her head with a familial disposition towards insanity (in fact, it was something of a minor miracle that both of her parents were sound of mind, given that both were members of the [[TangledFamilyTree ridiculously-inbred]] [[RoyallyScrewedUp House of Trastamara]]). Hence the epithet "the Mad" - her father Ferdinand had to become Regent of Castile upon his daughter's ascension instead of ruling jointly until she inherited Aragon upon his death. She also carried around Philip's dead body on her travels, another reason for her to be considered mad. And she had him buried so that she could see his tomb from her bedroom's window. Poor mad girl indeed. Phillip the Handsome's death would require a trope of its own.
