She was the daughter of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria and Franz of Lorraine. She was called Charlotte before her marriage and a close companion of Archduchess Maria Antonia (later Queen Marie Antoinette). After 2 elder sisters died in a row, she was picker to marry King Carlos III's younger son, Fernando, King of Napoli. She gave her husband plenty of children, including Marie Amelie (who later married Louis Philippe, and became Queen of the French). She was exiled by the British beck to Vienna, where she died.

The pair actually had 17 children (not all survived of course)! Even though Ferdinand, M.C. husband, had such a big family, he had a lot of affairs with ladies-in-waiting etc.
BTW, Maria Carolina had the same "hobby" as her mother: To marry off her children to the best mathes of Europe...

There is something interesting about Marie Caroline:
She had three grand sons heir to the throne of France:

  Marie Louis married napoleon and was mother of Napoleon II Duke of Reichstadt.

  Marie Amelie married Louis Philippe and her son became heir
marie Caroline de Berry which was her grand daugther had the Duc de Bordeaux who was also heir of the legitimist branch.
