Does anyone have a take on Marie-Therese's opinion of her mother?

I am wondering if she held any blame to her mother, or believed any of the sad gossip and lies?

Hello !

She had a poor opinion of her mother but it had nothing to do with gossip and lies, she could make her own opinion. Bombelle gives us some clues to understand why. To put it in a nutshell, Madame Royale reproached her mother for not taking enough care of her, for instance while walking about Versailles' corridors and not giving her her hand.

Much of that can be seen as natural friction between a mother and daughter. Marie-Therese loved her mother very much, and later she scratched on the wall of her prison, "Long live my good mother, of whom I have no news...." She did not know that her mother had already been killed.

(Yes I had read where she (MT) had stated (as a child) her mother did not care for her as her father did, as attending to her in the halls etc).
I am thinking more about her in later years, if she felt her mother was the reason for the revolution, or that she was a whore. You know all the public scorn.

I would perfer to think she knew better.

Oh, I think by that time she knew what court gossip was like. However, it is interesting to note that she herself, especially after the Restoration, tried to be very correct, never stylish or flirtatious (although she was known on occasion to appear in white satin and diamonds - very striking), spending long hours in chapel and occupied with charitable activities, in order to make sure that there would never be a hint of gossip about her virtue. And there never was....

I read about her a little and also on Wikipedia last night. It seems she had sad marriage and was tossed about from country to country.
I am going to have to do extra research on her I see.

The life of "Madame Royale" is enthralling! :D
And at the same time very hard to read because her life was so much wretched

Tomorrow, Oct 19, is the anniversary of the death of Marie-Therese-Charlotte de France at Frohsdorf in Austria in 1851. She died kissing her father's wedding band.

I think the amount of slander against her mother made Marie Therese extra cautious about how she appeared.

Yup tomorrow is October 19th...the day she was reunited with her family...

Rest in peace, dear princess, royal lady of France!

Rest in Peace! Hopefully she has found it and happiness too
