Marie Adélaïde of Savoy


Italian royalty by birth and dauphine of France as the wife of Louis, Dauphin of France, Duke of Burgundy. She was the eldest daughter of Duke Victor Amadeus II of Savoy and of Anne Marie d'Orléans. Her betrothal to the Duke of Burgundy in June 1696 was part of the Treaty of Turin, signed on 29 August 1696. She was the mother of the future King Louis XV of France. Styled as Duchess of Burgundy after her marriage, she became Dauphine of France upon the death of her father-in-law, Le Grand Dauphin, in 1711. She died of measles on 12 February 1712, followed by her husband a week later.

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Anna Maria d'Orleans: regina di Sardegna duchessa di Savoia, Saint-Cloud 27 agosto 1669-Torino 26 agosto 1728" by Maria Teresa Reineri (Centro studi piemontesi, 2006), p. 171: "Qui, infatti, intorno alle due e tre quarti del mattino del 6 dicembre 1685, vede la luce una bambina che appare sana e molto vitale, cui è data l'acqua del battesimo sullo stesso letto del travaglio."

Translation: Here, in fact, around two-forty-five in the morning of 6 December 1685, a little girl first saw the light, looking very healthy and robust, baptised in the same bed as she was born."
