Queen of France and Navarre
Daughter of King Philip IV of Spain and Elisabeth de France, Maria Theresa was born in 1638 at the Escurial Palace near Madrid. In 1660, in the wake of the Treaty of the Pyrenees, she married Louis XIV in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. The wedding sealed the reconciliation between France and Spain. Described by contemporary authors as timid and reserved, the queen accompanied the king on all of his official visits.
