Wasn't Elaan "Taming of the Shrew"?
Yes, but she's also a "mail order bride" of sorts. I was going mention she was part of the Shrew Taming trope as well, but decided to let someone else go for that one.
The basic idea of Elaan can be seen throughout history where a marriage is arranged to hopefully establish peace between two warring states or nations.
