  Louis, dauphin de France - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Louis Ferdinand, dauphin de France (4 September 1729-20 December 1765), born in Versailles, was the eldest and only surviving son of King Louis XV of France and Queen Marie Leszczyńska, and thus heir apparent (dauphin) to the throne of France.
In 1745, the 16-year-old dauphin Louis was married to the first cousin of his father, the 19-year-old infanta Maria-Teresa of Spain, daughter of King Philip V of Spain and Elizabeth Farnese.
The dauphin Louis died of tuberculosis at Fontainebleau in 1765 at the age of 36, while his father was still alive, thus never becoming king of France.

The future king Louis XVI was born at the royal palace of Versailles on 23 August, 1754 to Louis, dauphin de France, son of King Louis XV and Queen Maria Leszczyńska, and his wife Marie-Josèphe of Saxony, dauphine of France.
Louis' mother was Marie-Josèphe of Saxony, second wife of the Dauphin, and the daughter of Frederick Augustus II of Saxony, Prince-Elector of Saxony and King of Poland.
Louis was nowhere near as reactionary as his right-wing brothers, the comte d'Artois and the comte de Provence, and he sent repeated messages publicly and privately calling on them to halt their attempts to launch counter-coups (often through his secretly nominated regent, former minister de Brienne).

Louis' father was Louis, dauphin de France (1729-1765), the only son of Louis XV who reached adulthood, and who died at age 36, while Louis XV was still alive.
On June 21, 1791, Louis attempted to flee secretly from Paris to modern-day Belgium (then part of the Austrian Empire) with his family in the hope of forcing a moderate swing in the revolution than was deemed possible in radical Paris.

The Abbé de Châteauneuf died before his godson left school, but he had already introduced him to the famous and dissipated coterie of the Temple, of which the grand prior Vendôme was the head, and the poets Chaulieu and La Fare were the chief literary stars.
He was much employed, owing to Richelieu's influence, in the fetes of the dauphin (Louis, dauphin de France)'s marriage, and was rewarded through the influence of Madame de Pompadour on New Year's Day 1745 by the appointment to the post of historiographer-royal, temporarily achieving a secure social and financial position.

 Morganatic and Secret Marriages in the French Royalty
While Louis XIII's moves in 1634 were to have the marriage of his brother voided, in other matters (secret marriages, marriages without parental consent and marriages in extremis) the Blois ordinance of 1579 did not pronounce them void, but deprived them of all civil effects.
In France, the 1787 edict of toleration allowed a marriage to be contracted either before a Catholic priest or a royal judge, and reserved jurisdiction over litigation and dispensations to the civil courts exclusively.
The then-comte de Clermont divorced his wife in 1984 and married a divorcee the same year, his first religious marriage not having been anulled: his father, strongly disapproving, removed his son from the line of succession, but relented in 1991, and granted a title to his son's second civil wife.
