Bavarian Royalty. She was born in Strasbourg as the oldest daughter of Maximilian Joseph von Zweibrücken-Birkenfeld, who would later become the first Bavarian King, and Auguste Wilhelmine of Hesse-Darmstadt. She was supposed to marry the prince of Baden, but the engagement was dissolved and she was married to Eugène de Beauharnais instead. She was very unhappy to marry him in the beginning, but the couple soon fell in love. After Napoleons fall in 1814 they retired to Munich and Eugène was created Duke of Leuchtenberg and Prince of Eichstädt by her father.
