Rare representation of the four children of Louis XVI and Marie - Antoinette together:  The oldest, Maria Theresa called Madame Royale (1778 + 1851), future Duchess of Angoulême and was the only one to survive the revolution.  The first Dauphin Louis (1781 + 1789), died at the beginning of the event.  The future Louis XVII (1785 + 1795), died in the Temple.  Miss Sophie (1786 + 1787), whose death at 11 months allows us to date the miniature of 1787.
