About Marguerite de Lorraine

Marguerite of Lorraine (22 July 1615[1] – 13 April 1672) was a princess of Lorraine by birth and duchess of Orléans by virtue of her marriage Gaston of France, younger brother of King Louis XIII. After their re-marriage, Marguerite and Gaston had five children. She was the stepmother of La Grande Mademoiselle.

Life

She was born in Nancy, Lorraine to Francis II, Duke of Lorraine, and Countess Christina of Salm. One of six children, she grew up in Nancy which was the capital of her father's duchy. After losing her mother in 1627, she was brought up by her aunt Catherine of Lorraine—the Abbess of Remiremont.
