Only one of Marie Antoinette’s children would survive the Revolution. Both would leave their mark on the walls of the Temple tower.

Marie Therese, left entirely alone after her aunt was taken away, wrote:

Marie-Thérèse Charlotte is the most unhappy person in the world. She can obtain no news of her mother; nor be reunited to her, though she has asked it a thousand times. Live, my good mother! whom I love well, but of whom I can hear no tidings. O my father! watch over me from heaven above, life was so cruel to her. O my God! forgive those who have made my parents suffer.

Louis Charles would leave behind an unfinished scrawl: Maman, je vous pr— and a simple drawing of a flower.
