Post Re: Louis XVI 's Siblings.
Well, what I know is that Louis had three brothers (of whom the elder, the first dauphin, died when he was a child) and two sisters.
The living brothers were the Comtes of Artois and Provence, as most here know. One of his sisters got married, while the other one, Elisabeth, remained with him and MA also during their imprisonment.

About the first dauphin: do you know what was his complete name? And also: I read that he was considered very brilliant and gifted, and that Louis XVI felt a sense of inferiority after his death, as if he didn't really deserve his brother's place. Do you think this can have affected his insecure charachter?

Yes I think that affected him. Louis XVI probably thought those were big shoes to fill and that he couldn't fill them. Louis was brilliant in other ways, through his kindness and being really innovative.
