Queen Consort of Spain (1602) Elisabeth (by Diego Velázquez)


French-Spanish royalty, by marriage she became Queen consort of Spain (1621-1644) and Portugal (1621-1640) as the first wife of King Philip IV of Spain. She was the eldest daughter of King Henry IV of France and his second spouse Marie de' Medici. As a daughter of the king of France, she was born a Fille de France. As the eldest daughter of the king, she was known at court by the traditional honorific of Madame Royale.

In 1615, at the age of 12, she was married to Philip. Her groom was 10 and the marriage was consummated five years later. Queen Elisabeth and King Philip had eight children. Their last child, Infanta Maria Theresa of Spain, would later become Queen of France as the wife of her nephew, the future Louis XIV.

Elisabeth was renowned for her beauty, intelligence and noble personality, which made her very popular with the Spanish people. She died in Madrid on 6 October 1644 just before her 42nd birthday, leaving two small children: Balthasar Charles and Maria Theresa. After her death, her husband married his niece Mariana of Austria. One of her great-grandsons, Philip, Duke of Anjou, became King Philip V of Spain, and through him, Elisabeth is an ancestor of the present king of Spain Juan Carlos I of Spain.
