Maria Carolina of Austria


Marie-Antoinette's favorite sister, who was like a second mother to her, but from whom she was separated when Carolina went to Naples to get married. Throughout her life, Antoinette sought friends who would take Carolina's place. I have blogged about Maria Carolina before; her granddaughter was the notorious Caroline of Naples. Share

Beautiful woman. In "The Youth of Marie-Amelie, Queen of the French," I am hearing alot about Queen Maria Carolina. What a fighter she was!
