|Death: ||Nov. 5, 1471|
Vicomtesse de La Guerche et de Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte, dame des îles de Mazanne, d'Oléron et d'Auvert, dame de Montrésor et de Cholet. Cousin of the famous beauty Agnès Sorel. Mistress of King Charles VII and François II de Bretagne. In addition to her other titles she was the Baronne de Villequier by marriage.
In 1463 she made a gift of her lands and the châtellenie at Cholet to her son François, described as «fils naturel» of the «haut et puissant prince François à present duc de Bretaigne». Likewise, before her death Antoinette and the duke arranged the marriage and made a dowry of the seigneurie, lands, and rents associated with the hôtel and manor of Brossay for their daughter, noble demoiselle Jeanne de Beaucours, who was given as a third wife to her father's courtier Jean Eder, seigner de La Haye. In 1474 the widowed Jeanne de Beaucours became the second wife of Gilles du Matz, her father's maître-d'hôtel at the Château de Nantes, and was the mother of his children. Jeanne de Beaucours was alive as late as 1502.

Note: The chapel where she was interred was destroyed in 1563 during the religious wars, but the stone with her sepulchral inscription survives in the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Cholet.
