The Bourbon Dynasty: Marie Adélaîde of Savoy , Dauphine: The Life Force ( 1685-1712)
When Marie Adélaîde arrived at the court of Louis XIV to marry his grandson Le Petit Dauphin, she immediately became a star. Louis XIV was enchanted by her and her staid, conservative new husband fell madly in love with her.
Marie Adélaîde lived for pleasure; dancing and gambling till dawn.
Marie Adélaîde came down with measles and died. Her husband followed her 6 days later. They are buried together in the royal mausoleum in St. Denis.
Note: With regard to her severe, religious husband, Marie Adélaîde is said to have said that he should have married a nun.
