December 31, 1947: The 'King' and the 'Queen' tied the knot

December 31, 1947: 'King of the Cowboys' (Roy Rogers) and ‘Queen of the West’ (Dale Evans) tied the nuptial knot. They spent more than fifty years together in this relationship.

The pair, married in Davis, Oklahoma, were an on- and off- screen couple starting from 1946 until Rogers' death of congestive heart failure in 1998. They had only one child, Robin Elizabeth, who suffered from Down's syndrome and died before reaching the age of 2.

  1. They always seemed like good people. ~ On another note: I've always enjoyed the "Titles" that get handed out.

    I started to listen to the Roy Rogers show and they are better than I remembered.

    My baby sister was born in 1953. Her middle name is Dale after-guess who? You got it! We never missed Roy and Dale in those days.
