LAMBALLE, MARIA. THEREsA LOUISA OF SAVOY-CARIGNAN, Princess of, a victim of the French revolution, was b. at Turin, Sept. 8, 1749, and was the daughter of prince Loris Victor Amadeus of Carignan. She was very beautiful and amiable, and was married in 1767 to Louis Alexander Joseph Stanislaus de Bourbon, prince of Lamballe, who soon after died a victim of debauchery. The princess became the intimate friend and chosen companion of Marie Antoinette. At the time of the attempted flight of the king and queen she sought refuge in England, but returned to them in Feb., 1792. After the events of Aug. 10 she received permission to share the captivity of the queen, but was soon separately immured in the prison of La Force, and on Sept. 3 was brought before the tribunal, and commanded to swear that she loved liberty and equality, and hated the king, the queen, and royalty. " The first oath," she replied, " I will swear, but the rest I cannot; my heart rebels against it." Many of those who stood by were
anxious that she should escape, but she 'did not hear the advises which they addressed to her. " Let madame gol ' said the president; and at this signal of death two men conducted her to the doer, where she received a stroke of a saber on the back of her head, when blood spouted up and her long hair fell down. On receiving a second stroke she fell, and the murderers tore her body to pieces, placed her head and heart upon pikes, and brutally paraded them before the windows of the temple, where the royal family were confined.
