[edit] Life

Louis Joseph Xavier de France, duc de Bourgogne was the third surviving child and eldest son of Dauphin Louis Ferdinand de France and Princess Maria Josepha of Saxony, and was thus the oldest brother to the future kings Louis XVI, Louis XVIII and Charles X.

He was put in the care of Marie Isabelle de Rohan, duchesse de Tallard.

Louis Joseph Xavier was given the title of Duke of Burgundy by his grandfather, Louis XV of France, and was next in line to the throne of France after his father. He was much loved by those who were close to him, especially his older sister Princess Marie Zéphyrine of France, who died at the age of five in 1755.

He died at the age of nine at Versailles after having fallen from a toy horse in 1760. He started limping and a tumour began to grow on his hip. This was operated on, but he never recovered the use of his legs. He was buried at the Basilica of St Denis. [edit] Siblings
