An eligible bachelor is a bachelor considered to be a particularly
desirable potential husband, usually due to wealth, social status or
other specific personal qualities. In the United Kingdom, the heir to
the throne or someone close in succession is often considered to be the
nation's, or the world's most eligible bachelor, due to their social
status, as has happened with Prince Charles and Prince William. Jane
Austen's novels are often concerned with the heroine's relationship with
an eligible bachelor. Jane Austen's Emma particularly concerns a woman's
attempt to obtain a husband for her friend by embellishing the truth.
The gentleman in that case sees it as an example of the matchmaker's
creativity and falls in love with her.
