French nobility. She was one of the six children of Francis I and Claude that had red hair, a trait inherited from Anne of Brittany, Claude's mother. Charlotte was a beautiful child, with greenish blue eyes and bright red hair. She lived a happy life, moving from the Château d'Amboise to the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye before March 1519.
Charlotte had always been a delicate, frail child. At age seven, she contracted measles, the same disease which had killed her half-uncle, Charles Orlando, Dauphin of France just thirty years earlier. At not quite eight, the Princess died. The only person who looked after her while she was sick was her aunt Margaret of Navarre, as her mother Claude had already died two months earlier, her grandmother Louise of Savoy was very sick and her father Francis I of France had gone to war. He would later be imprisoned, so he was not anywhere near his daughter at the time of her death. It appears as if Charlotte was very close to her aunt Margaret, who was heartbroken and distraught when her "little one" died, on 18 September 1524.
