Marie Marguerite de Bourbon, born at the Hôtel de Soissons, Paris, was the second daughter and youngest child of Charles de Bourbon, comte de Soissons and his wife Anne de Montafié. At the court of Louis XIII, Marie, as a member of the House of Bourbon-Condé, enjoyed the rank of princesse du sang.
On 6 January 1625 Marie was married to Thomas Francis, ninth child of Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy and his wife Infanta Catherine Michelle of Spain. It was arranged that Thomas, as son of a reigning monarch, would hold the rank of first among the princes étrangers at the French court—taking precedence even before the formerly all-powerful House of Guise, whose kinship to the sovereign Duke of Lorraine was more remote. He was appointed Grand Maître of the king's household, briefly replacing the traitorous Grand Condé. He engaged the services of the distinguished grammarian and courtier Claude Favre de Vaugelas as tutor for his children.
After Thomas, the senior branch of his descendants repatriated to Savoy, alternately marrying French, Italian and German princesses.
After the Bourbons obtained the French crown and the Princes de Condé and their heirs apparent became known (by right of their rank as premier princes du sang), respectively, as Monsieur le prince and Monsieur le duc, Charles came to be styled Monsieur le comte at court. That honorific was borne also by his son Louis and, subsequently, by the Savoy-Carignan counts of Soissons, who inherited the countship from Charles's daughter, Marie, princesse de Carignan, even though they ranked as princes étrangers in France rather than as princes du sang.
At the death of her older brother Louis de Bourbon (6 July 1641), Marie was named his heir and became the Countess of Soissons suo jure. She lived in her native France with her husband and resided at the Hôtel de Soissons where she was born. It was Marie who built the small Château de Bagnolet in Paris; at her death the building was acquired by the Ferme générale François Le Juge. In 1719 it became the property of Françoise-Marie de Bourbon. Marie and her daughter helped to raise the famous Prince Eugene of Savoy, the famous soldier.

The family connections of Marie
Thomas and Marie had seven children who survived infancy (Italian names in parentheses):
1. Princess Cristine Charlotte of Savoy (1626 † 1626)
2. Princess Louise Christine of Savoy (1627 - 1689), married in 1654 to Ferdinand Maximilian of Baden-Baden (1625-1669), and was mother of

In 1684 he married in Racconigi, at the age of fifty-six, Princess Angela Catherina d'Este (1656-1722), an almost twenty-nine year-old granddaughter of Cesare I d'Este, Duke of Modena. Because he was deaf-mute, the marriage shocked his mother, infuriated his sister-in-law Olympia Mancini, injured the inheritance prospects of his French nephews and nieces, and so offended Louis XIV that Francis II, Duke of Modena felt obliged to banish from his realm the bride's kinsman, who had acted as the couple's intermediary. They had four children including:
