On February 23rd, 1745, Louis, the Dauphin of France, married his first wife, Maria Teresa Rafaela of Spain.

The marriage got off to a rocky start, but the Dauphin soon fell very much in love with his wife. Their happiness, sadly, did not last very long. The next year, the new Dauphine gave birth to a daughter, christened Marie Therese and known by the title of Madame Royale.

Maria Teresa Rafaela died three days after the birth, devastating her husband. He had to be physically dragged away from her deathbed by his father, Louis XV.

He was remarried the next year to Maria Josepha of Saxony, and had several children with her, including three future Kings of France. (Louis XVI, Louis XVIII, and Charles X). His daughter by Maria Theresa Rafaela, Marie Therese, died the year after her father’s remarriage.


The title of “Dauphine of France,” was given to the wife of the heir-apparent to the French Throne.
