: married Marie-Antoinette's sister Elisabeth
: after the death of Queen Marie Leczinska.
: Unfortunately the archduchess caught the
: pocks and was disfigured. Before it she was
: considered to be a good-looking woman.
: Having a grown sister as Queen/dowager Queen
: at court would have made Marie Antoinette's
: life a lot easier.
