Princess of France Sophie Hélène Beatrix (by Élisabeth Vigée-Le Brun, 1786)


French princess, the daughter of Louis XVI of France and Marie Antoinette. As the daughter of a King of France, she was a Fille de France.

Sophie was the youngest of the four children of king Louis XVI and queen Marie Antoinette. She was named after her great-aunt Princess Sophie of France, Louis XV's sixth daughter, who had died four years earlier.

Sophie was born a very large baby, but her fragile health was undermined by tuberculosis. She died on 19 June 1787 in Versailles after suffering five or six days of convulsions caused by the cutting of new teeth. She was eleven months old.

Her death was a cause for much sorrow on the part of her parents. When Marie Antoinette's foster-brother, Joseph Weber, attempted to console her with the fact that given Sophie's tender age Marie Antoinette must not have grown overly attached to her, the bereaved mother is supposed to have said, "Don't forget that she would have been my friend." This was a reference to her words after the birth of Sophie's older sister in 1778.
