Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna von Habsburg-Lothringen was an Archduchess of Austria and the Queen of France and Navarre (Vienna, 1755 – Paris, 1793). At the age of fourteen she married Louis-Auguste, Dauphin of France, and she became Dauphine de France.  In 1774, after the death of Louis XV, her husband ascended to the French throne as Louis XVI and she became Queen of France and Navarre.
