Beatrice and Dante - Beatrice Portinari Dante fell in love with Beatrice when he was only nine years old, but would love her all his life. Unfortunately his parents signed a contract for him to marry someone else, so he and Beatrice could never become a couple. Then she tragically died when he was 25. Yet in his writings, she was everywhere. She appeared briefly to him in Inferno, then escorted him through heaven in Paradiso. Here we see them together at last.
