Post Re: Sophie-Béatrix
Why she died young is also a reason she isn't mentioned, but also because of etiquette at the French court -- a Princess' death could not be officially 'mourned' unless she was at least seven years old. This is the case with of the daughters of Louis XIV and his eldest daughter, some of the children of Louis XV IIRC, and the eldest daughter of Louis XVI's father, Marie-Zépherine.
