By all accounts Therese had Antoinette's proud bearing, as the above portrait also shows....

Yes exactly!
And Mrs Royale had this pride very young , and much thought of a coldness because she semms to be too serious (from where her nickname "Mousseline la sérieuse").
Marie-Antoinette explains in a letter that she wanted to correct this early pride :D

That is so true, Louis-Charles. People criticized the Duchesse d'Angouleme for her pride and coldness but she had been that way since childhood. Her mother had tried to correct it. Being in prison for so many years and having so many tragedies only made it all worse. Bertier de Sauvigny, the author of "The Bourbon Restoration" said that Marie-Therese-Charlotte had her mother's pride without her charm and her father's shyness without his common touch and kindly manner - although she was a very kind and generous at heart.

Indeed! She was really generous, and gave much to the poor when she was youg.
And the Duchess of Angoulème gave the tapestries which she knitted to severals associations... she held that from her mother too :wink:

Yes, she excelled at needlework all of her life and made everything, even rugs.

Thanks again for the portrait! I wondered what she looked like after her time in the Temple.
Note the cameo of her parents on her dress.

I can see traits from both of her parents apparent in her looks. :)

I have never seen this portrait before. Is it contemporary or modern? Suffice it to say, she is rather homely, no?

Wow...those pictures are so beautiful. It makes me so sad because she looks so much like her mother and father. In that one picture named "orphan of the temple" (if im not mistaken) she looks and has that wonderful gaze just as her mother. Although she looks more serious..its very haunting.

This might sound strange but when i look at those pictures..and see the stress and horror in her eyes from her past...its as if Marie Antoinette and King Louis are looking through those eyes back at the world and saying "What have you done to us?" (to the people who killed them and tortured the children) ....... :cry:

I really like those portraits. Marie Therese was very beautiful in this portrait:

I hear she was red-faced, with terrible teeth! :shock: :lol:

Yes I agree she is very cut here too! :D

And it's logical : she is the Marie-Antoinette's daughter :wink:
