Maria was extremely close with her sister, Marie Josephine of Savoy, who was three years older than her.
Maria was the cousin of Marie Louise of Savoy, a great friend of Marie Antoinette - her sister-in-law.
Maria married Charles X of France in 1773 in Versailles. They met for the first time at their wedding ceremony. However, at the time, Charles was not a king (and, in fact, never would be during Maria's lifetime). He was rather known as the Count of Artois. Though the couple had a good relationship, Charles was considered to be one of the most handsome men in the royal family, while Maria was considered quite plain, if not having a good complexion. Resultingly, Charles had numerous affairs with other women at court, and the longtime love of his life was Louise d'Esparbes de Lussan - not Maria.
