Marie-Thérèse Charlotte de France, nicknamed "Mousseline la Sérieuse" by her mother, was the first child of Louis XVI of France and his wife Marie-Antoinette, and the only one to survive the events of the French Revolution.

Marie-Thérèse Charlotte was born in Versailles on 19 December 1778, eight years after her parents' marriage. She was baptized on the same day. She was named after her godparents: her maternal grandmother, Empress Maria Theresia of Austria (represented by Madame, Marie-Josèphe Louise de Savoie, comtesse de Provence), and King Charles III of Spain (represented by Monsieur, Louis-Stanislas-Xavier de France, comte de Provence, brother of the King).[1]

She had two younger brothers, Louis-Joseph-Xavier (born 1781) and Louis-Charles (born 1785). Her sister Sophie, born 1786, died in infancy.

Marie-Thérèse Charlotte was not yet 10 years old when the French Revolution broke out.
