Princess Palatine Elizabeth Charlotte (German: Pfalzprinzessin Elisabeth Charlotte born 27 May 1652, Heidelberg – died 8 December 1722, Saint-Cloud) was a German princess and, as Madame, the wife of Philippe I, Duke of Orléans, younger brother of Louis XIV of France, and mother of France's ruler during the Regency., called "Liselotte von der Pfalz" was in 1671 with Philip, the Duke of Orléans, brother of Louis XIV married. In her life she wrote about 60,000 letters to their relatives who occupied many thrones of Europe, about 5000 of them are obtained. In these letters she deals with life at the French court.
After the death of Liselotte's brother, who had died childless, Louis XIV wanted the Electoral Palatinate for himself. For these disputes, the War of the Grand Alliance (1688-1697), whose had terrible consequences for the country of Palatine. Liselotte had to watch this all from Paris, feeling full of guilt. Just because she tried to avert the war, sadly unsuccessfully, she took ,and still takes, a popular role in the Palatinate. Result of the War of the Grand Alliance was that France was granted the Alsace.
