French royalty, the daughter of Charles VI and his wife, Isabeau of Bavaria. She was a member of the House of Valois and became a nun.

Marie was the sixth of twelve children, eight of them including Marie lived to adulthood. Marie's father was known to suffer from a hereditary mental illness. Isabeau had destined her daughter for the church, possibly because she saw her husband's madness as a punishment from God. Marie entered the convent of Poissy on 8 September 1397, taking her vows as a nun on 26 May 1408. She was the only one of the children that had a religious life; the rest of her surviving siblings were married off.

At the time Marie entered the convent the prioress was her great-aunt, Marie of Bourbon, who was the sister of the younger Marie's paternal grandmother, Joanna of Bourbon. Marie later became prioress of the convent. She lived out the rest of her life here. She died of the Black Death on 19 August 1438 at the Palais Royal in Paris. The only of her siblings who survived her was King Charles VII.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Annales de la monarchie française" by Henri-Philippe de Limiers (L'Honoré et Chatelain, 1724), p. 65: "naquit au Château du Bois de Vincennes le 22. d'Août à dix heures du soir l'an 1392." However, her brother Charles was born on 6 February 1392 so she was born in 1393.
