Recquiscat in Pace Princesse de Lamballe

How the hell I let the 3rd pass without honoring Marie Antoinette’s greatest friend, I haven’t a clue.

But today is that great lady’s birthday, so she must be honored, happy 218th birthday sweet Princesse.

On September 3rd 1792 Princesse de Lamballe was brutally murdered and mutilated by roving mobs of madmen, primarily the sans culottes, hungry for “liberty” and blood.  Please refer to sidebar for more info on the Sans Culottes.

Princess Marie Thérèse Louise of Savoy -Carignan, Princess of Lamballe

b. September 8th 1749

d. September 3rd 1792

Her end, part of a wave of horror known as the September Massacres, was a violent bloody affair. God knows her final thoughts , loyal to the end to her great friends, Marie and Louis,  she was separated from Marie earlier in “92. A pity for both women to have lost the companionship of one another when it was needed most urgently.

The evil crowds blaspheming her in name and ultimately in body , placed her head upon a pike. A grisly gift they thought fit for a Divine Sovereign.

Recquiscat in Pace dear Princesse.

It is also appropriate to remember the others martyred defending the Faith : the 24 True priests, massacred on route to the prison/Abbe of Saint Germain, the  150 other priests brutally murdered in a Carmelite sanctuary, the brave-hearted Swiss Guard, the average common Catholic, loyal to his King and his God.

    I love your blog, the sacred and the profane, you always pop in one of my favorite “girls ‘ amidst the pretty boys. It’s appreciated.
    Sept. 1st was Louis XIV’s b’day I believe, will cobble together a little belated tribute.

  3. I’ve heard of the September massacres and her story has always saddened me. Amazing what a frenzied crowd can do — lose all sense of a moral compass. Thank you for this post.

  4. I obviously share your sadness,
    Take care,

  5. […] A belated tribute to the Princesse Lamballe’s birth and death anniversary. […]
