... the man who married Siamese twins, who had multiple wives ...

This reminded me of the incredible story of Chang and Eng Bunker -- the original Siamese Twins. Born in Siam (now Thailand), they later settled in North Carolina and became American citizens. They married girls who were sisters -- identical twins, in fact, but not conjoined. They had a bed for four, and Chang and his wife produced 10 children, while Eng and his wife produced 11. Eventually, the sisters squabbled and lived in separate houses. Then Chang and Eng would alternate between spending three days at one sister's house and three days at the other sister's house.
