The Princess Palatine Elisabeth-Charlotte of Bavaria, Duchesse d'Orléans, was Marie-Antoinette's great-grandmother. Called "Liselotte" she was the second wife of Philippe d'Orléans, brother of the Sun King Louis XIV. The first wife of Philippe was Henrietta Anne of Great Britain, who was the great great grandmother of Louis XVI. Thus both Louis and Antoinette were direct descendants of Philippe. Share
