Just a curious question: I've found out in another topics about the novel Madame Royale that she appears as "Therese" in the story. Does it mean that she used this one of her names in her private life? I noticed that she didn't use Charlotte by signing her letters, although I think it suits her good, too. It relates her in my mind to her aunt, Carolina, who was a special woman in her age, just like Madame Royale... anyway, did she remain "Madame Royale" after her marriage?

From what I understand, she usually went by "Therese" or "Marie-Therese" among family or friends. At the time of her marriage her title changed from "Madame Royale" to the "Duchess of Angouleme." Later during the Restoration she was known as just plain "Madame" and during the reign of Charles X as "Madame la Dauphine." I chose to call the novel "Madame Royale" because the happenings of her childhood and girlhood would define her forever.

I was surprised to see her called "Charlotte" by Princess Henriette of Belgium in her book about Madame Elisabeth.

Interesting. scratch I have heard that she was called "Charlotte Capet" by the Revolutionary government but perhaps by others as well. Question
