Louis-Joseph-Xavier-François (22 October 1781 – 4 June 1789);

Two children died early, only the first and third surviving to and after the Revolution.
Louis XVI's and Marie Antoinette's remaining son, now Louis XVII, was kept in a dark filthy cell until he died of tuberculosis in 1795. In future years, many men came forward claiming to be the long-lost prince. In April 2000 DNA experts announced that tests done on the heart of the boy who died in prison proved that he was Marie Antoinette's son.
Marie Antoinette's daughter, Madame Royale, survived the Revolution. She became the Duchesse d'Angouleme and lived to see the reigns of her uncles Louis XVIII and Charles X. She had no children.
