SUBALBUM:  Élisabeth Philippine Marie Helene de France, Madame Élisabeth

Elizabeth Philippine was the youngest child of Dauphine Marie Josèphe, born in 1764. She stayed with her older brother, Louis XVI. According to her Wikipedia article, Robespierre wanted to exile her, but "She was accused of assisting the king's flight, of supplying émigrés with funds, and of encouraging the resistance of the royal troops during the events of 10 August 1792. During her trial, she replied, when addressed as 'The Sister of a Tyrant': 'If my brother had been what you call him, you would not have been where you are, nor I where I am.' She was condemned to death and guillotined the following day." She never married.
