Marie Thérèse Charlotte de France aka Madame Royale aka Duchesse d’Angoulême
She was a Bourbon princess, the first born child of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and the only one of her immediate family to survive the French Revolution.
After her release from the Temple Prison in 1795 she was sent to Vienna where she spent 4 years attempting to manipulate the Holy Roman Emperor to release her into the custody of Louis XVIII and her other French relatives. When her wish was granted in 1799 she joined the emigre king, married her cousin the Louis Antoine, Duc d’Angoulême, and spent the next 15 years in exile.
At the time of the Bourbon Restoration in 1814, Marie Thérèse triumphantly returned to Paris with Louis XVIII. She became a valued member of Louis’s court and one of his closest advisors, influencing political decisions made during the Restoration (though she is rarely if every given credit for this).
When Napoleon returned for his 100 Days in 1815 Marie Thérèse attempted to fight back against him single handedly when all of her male relatives had already fled the country. For her courage and unflinching devotion to the crown Napoleon paid her the high compliment of calling the Duchesse d’Angoulême “le seul homme de la famille” or “the only man in the family.”
