Karl August was much older than his beautiful bride, with an age difference of 25 years between the two. The match was engineered by Karl's brother, Holy Germanic Emperor Maximilian IV, whose own wife was Blanche's aunt Viveka of Arendaal. Maximilian wanted to further the Empire's alliance with the Aren King, King Edvard II, who ruled both the Kingdoms of Arendaal and Suionia in a personal union. The Emperor proposed his son as a suitor for the young Aren Queen. Blanche's grandfather King Edvard II, however, was unwilling to let her marry such a close relation (a first cousin), especially given the opposition of Blanche's father, Crown Prince Lief, to such matches. The proposal was thus declined. Intent on a marriage, however, Maximilian IV pressed the suit and put forth his younger brother, the widowed Karl August, as a potential suitor. With favourable terms proposed, Edvard II consented to the match. Karl August and Blanche were married in 1388, shortly before she came to the throne.

Karl August of Saxony was made "Prince of Kronhielm" upon his marriage. This was the basis for the House of Kronhielm, the branch of the Kapetien Dynasty that would rule Arendaal once Karl and Blanche's son, Niklaas III came to power in 1408. He wielded great influential during his wife's reign, particularly with regards to her rule in Suionia. Little is known of the details of their marriage except for the great political influence Karl enjoyed. Among the letters written between Karl and his brother the Emperor, he refers to his wife more than once as "a pearl of great price".
