More About this Item


Description: [FRANCE] Marie Thérèse de France (Marie Thérèse Charlotte; [1778-1851]was the eldest child of King Louis XVI of France and his wife, Queen Marie Antoinette. As the daughter of the king, she was a Fille de France, and as the eldest daughter of the king, she was given the traditional honorific Madame Royale at birth. She married her cousin, Louis Antoine, Duke of Angoulême, the eldest son of the future Charles X. Once married, she assumed her husband's title and was known as the Duchess of Angoulême. She became the Dauphine of France upon the accession of her father-in-law to the throne of France in 1824. Technically she was Queen of France for twenty minutes, in 1830, between the time her father-in-law signed the instrument of abdication and the time her husband, reluctantly, signed the same document. She was the only child to survive the Reign of Terror. Offered here is an interesting manuscript letter not dated [c. 1816], 12-1/3 lengthy pages, approx. 7-3/4 x 11-3/4 pages. . Content unknown. Note: we are unable to ascertain at this time whether or not this letter is actually in the hand of Marie or perhaps a secretary, therefore it is being offered as a secretarial letter from that time period.
