Amazing facts-Strange condition

German poet Heine left all his money to his wife with the condition of she remarrying

In 1841, the poet Heinrich Heine married Eugenie Mirat, an uneducated, boorish, and absurdly vain clerk in a Parisian bootshop. Heine's affection for Eugenie was not without its ambiguities. In his will, Heine left her his whole estate, on one condition: that she remarry. Why? "Because then there will be at least one man," he explained, "who will regret my death."
The German poet died in 1856.
