Has anyone ever read or can they recommend a biography on the life of Madame Élisabeth of France (sister of Louis XVI) ?

I have read several books on Princess Elizabeth, unfortunately all of them were in French.
If you can speak French or find translations, I would recommend the following:

- "Madame Elisabeth: la Princesse Martyre" ("Madame Elisabeth, the Martyr Princess") by Martial Debriffe
- "Une Sœur de Louis XVI, Madame Elisabeth" ("Madame Elisabeth, a Sister of Louis XVI") by Noelle Destremau
- "Madame Elisabeth, la Sœur Martyre de Louis XVI" ("Madame Elisabeth, the Martyr Sister of Louis XVI") by Monique de Huerta
- "Le Sacrifice du Soir, Vie et Mort de Madame Elisabeth, Sœur de Louis XVI" ("The Evening Sacrifice: The Life and Death of Madame Elisabeth, sister of Louis XVI") by Jean de Viguerie

Of those listed, my favourite are the first and especially the fourth ones (a really good read with plenty of pretty accurate and well-researched data), and the least favourite - the third one.


I've also come across this book on the Princess which you can read online: "La Vie de Madame Elisabeth, Sœur de Louis XVI" ("The Life of Madame Elisabeth, Sister of Louis XVI). I haven't read this one (although I now endeavour to) but unfortunately, it's in French as well.

Many thanks Artemisia,alas my French is quite basic but I do believe that Élisabeth of France is deserving of a new biography...hopefully in English!

This is certainly a book I'll be looking out for,its a pity that so much of the medieval quarters of Paris were pulled down having survived the horrors of the revolutions.Countless medieval churches,abbeys and chapels,many of which housed royal and noble tombs.

Princess Marie-Therese is an interesting royal person to learn about.
