Kelly Gardiner Hi, There's no record at all of her mother, so the answer to that really interesting question is lost in time.
In fact, there's no record of her birth, or even her place of death - although that's not unusual in Paris where many records were lost in the Revolution or the Commune.
My research leads me to believe she lived at the riding school at the old Tuileries Palace until the court moved to Versailles, but there's no evidence of her childhood at all. At least, not so far.
