ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: (1753-1810) Marie Josephine Louise of Savoy (Italian: Maria Giuseppina Luigia) was a Princess of France and Countess of Provence by marriage to the future King Louis XVIII of France. She was by Bourbon Royalists regarded as titular Queen of France from the death of her husband's nephew, the titular King Louis XVII of France in 1795, when her husband assumed the title of King, until her death, but in reality never had this title, as she died before he truly became King in 1814.
