Life

Marie-Thérèse de France was born 2 January 1667 at the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Her parents had her baptised in the Palais du Louvre in 1668.

As a Fille de France, Marie-Thérèse was referred to as Her Royal Highness and had de France as her surname.

She was also known as La Petite Madame to distinguish her from her aunts, the wives of her uncle Monsieur, who were known as the first Madame (died 1670) and the second Madame (died 1722). The young princess died on 1 March 1672 at the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
