n.
Marriage between a man of royal or noble birth and his concubine, or a woman greatly his inferior, with the stipulation that wife and children have no claims to his titles or possessions or dignity. The concept is now limited to royal marriages. Syn. Morganatic marriage or marriage of the left hand.
[Hist.] So-called, because at the nuptial ceremony the husband gives his left hand to the bride, rather than his right, when saying, “I take thee for my wedded wife.”
