Marie-Thérèse Charlotte of France in 1797

Although she was not married until June of 1799, the daughter of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette is called the Duchesse d'Angoulême in the above 1797 print, which meant the betrothal had been formalized, at least as far as her uncle Louis XVII was concerned. It is interesting, because she would have still been in Vienna at the time.

 Today is her birthday. Mine is one of the few novels about the Princess.
