That is very likely. I thought at first it was the very devout Monsieur de la Ferronnays, Berry's attendant, but you are probably right.

How are the children of the last portait? One is Caroline's daugther, but the other...?

Great pictures! Yes, the little girl is Mademoiselle Louise d'Artois. The baby boy is Caroline's son, Henri de Chambord, the Duc de Bordeaux. Caroline is in rose-pink, Therese is all in white and gold.

But when Henri de Chambord was born, his father, the Duc de Berry, was already dead :?

This is the birth of Henri, Duc de Bordeaux. As was the Bourbon custom, his tongue was moistened with wine from Navarre, as in the days of Henri IV. Louis XVIII is holding him, administering the wine.

Yes, that is why Berry is not in the picture. Only Angouleme, Artois, and Louis XVIII. Artois is holding his grandson.

Above is a picture of Caroline arriving in France to regain the throne for her son Henri.

Caroline was married to Berry in May or June of 1816. She married Count Ettore Luchesi-Palli in the summer of 1832. I don't have the exact dates - I gave my copy of "Madame Royale" to someone....

The french tradition obligated Marie Antoinette and all the other Queens and Duaphins to, in the same day that she would cross the french border, walk naked without the foreign clothes... Did Caroline passed by the same "test"?

No, Caroline did not have to do that and some historians such as Evelyn Lever think that that the story of crossing the border naked was exaggerated in the case of marie-Antoinette.
