438) Maria Teresa Rafaela of Spain

Maria Teresa Rafaela of Spain (1726 –  1746). Infanta of Spain by birth and Dauphine of France by marriage to Louis, Dauphin of France, son of Louis XV of France.

- " the bride was the Infanta Maria Teresa Rafaela of Spain, 19 years old, red-haired, and by many contemporary accounts, ill favoured." 

- "Although the dauphine was described as beautiful, dignified, pious, and well educated, negative remarks were made because of her red hair"
