Marie-Antoinette's eight year old son, Louis-Charles (Louis XVII) was taken away from her, beaten, given whiskey and shown pornography. He was pressured into giving a grotesque, detailed story accusing his mother and aunt of molesting him. He eventually died of TB, covered with scabies and lice, at the age of ten, in the Temple prison. (See Deborah Cadbury's THe Lost King of France) However, because no reliable person, such as his sister who was right upstairs, were allowed to identify the body, this gave rise to rumors that he had escaped and had been replaced by another boy.

The princess Marie-Therese-Charlotte was in prison for three years. The first year with most of her family, the second year with only her aunt Elisabeth, and the third year, in solitary confinement. She was 17 when released from prison. She eventually married her cousin and had an unhappy marriage, but worked for the restoration of the monarchy in France. She returned to France in 1814 but ws exiled again in 1830. She died in Austria in 1851. There are several books about her, incuding some novels, Sharn Stewart's The Dark Tower and Elena Maria Vidal's Madame Royale.

Hi Therese, do you know of any good biographies about Madame Royale? I'm very interested in her and would like to know more about her life after the imprisonment. Thanks!

Yes! Joseph Turquan's biography, "Madame Royale: The Last Dauphine."

Also, "Marie-Antoinette's daughter" by Alice Curtis Desmond.

"The Youth of the Duchess of Angouleme" and "The Duchess of Angouleme and the Two Restorations" both by Imbert de Saint-Amand.

Also, one of our forum members who has studied her life has commented on the "E.M. Vidal's 'Madame Royale'" thread (in the Literature category) that that book is about as close to a biography as a novel can get.

For the french books there are I know :

"Madame Royale" by André Castelot : very good book
"Madame Royale" by Monique de Huertas. This book speaks about the possible substitution of Marie-Thérèse at the time of her exile towards Vienna :D

"Madame Royale, la fille de Marie-Antoinette" by R.Langeron : very interesting too :D

Did Madame Royale have children and if so are there descendants of Antoinette and Louis still alive? That would be fascinating!

Indeed the Duke of Angoulème was Louis XIX during 20 minutes, the time necessary so that he signs his abdication in favour of his nephew the Count de Chambord, by taking his time, just after the abdication of his father Charles X :D

Dnd he would have remained King longer if he had been able…He was in anger during the 2 weeks which followed :lol:

She was greatly loved at first but by 1830 liberal propaganda had destroyed her reputation and the people's love for her, just as in her mother's case.
