Maria Christina of Saxony (7 December 1770 – 24 November 1851) was a Princess of Saxony and Duchess of Courland. She was the Princess of Carignano and later Princess of Montléart by marriage.

Maria Christina was the only child of Carl Christian Joseph of Saxony, himself son of August III of Poland, and his morganatic wife Franziska von Corvin-Krasinski. Her parents married secretly in Warsaw in 1760. Her mother was created a princess in her own right due to her marriage.

In Turin on 24 October 1797, she married Charles Emmanuel, Prince of Carignano. They had two children. Charles Emmanuel died three years after his marriage in a French prison.

On 1 February 1816 she was remarried in Paris to Julius Maximilian de Montléart, Prince of Montléart (1787–1865). Her stepson, Prince de Montléart, developed the district of Gallitzinberg in Vienna and built the Schloss Wilhelminenberg there.

Maria Christina died in Paris on 24 November 1851 at age 80.

 Charles Albert of Savoy (1798–1849), Prince of Carignano, and King of Sardinia married Maria Theresa of Austria and had issue.
 Maria Francesca Elisabetta Carlotta Giuseppina of Savoy (1800–1856), married Archduke Rainer of Austria and had issue.

The NEW Gallery

The NEW Gallery

Welcome to The NEW Gallery!
This group was inspired by the original Gallery which was run by SylviaAst and Su Zany
Unfortunately, this group has closed, but we shared the idea to open a NEW Gallery where every member can have a personal Polyvore art show!
This group offers wonderful weekly Art Exhibitions showcasing ONE MEMBER’s sets at a time in the format of a contest. Everyone is welcome to submit art sets to the group, but, please be respectful and do not enter them into another person’s Art Show / contest (banishment from group and no Show of your own is the consequence). Please let the featured artist know how much you enjoyed their show and don’t forget to vote for your 12 favorites each week!
We will invite group members and other Polyvore artists to feature their absolute best work in a showcase of their ART, FASHION or INTERIOR DESIGN sets for a week. If you would like to have your very own Art Exhibition, please let the moderator know.

------------ For those interested in having an Art Show at the NEW Gallery ------------
Once we have acknowledged that you are interested in being showcased, the next step is to send us a short biography (bio) AND ALSO a title for your exhibition. It's your show, select something that you believe represents your art!
It will be published when your Art Show is set up. Share anything that you want the Polyvore family to know about you when they view your art. Polyvore now limits the space for your bio to 300 spaces or about 55 words, so it must be short.

The next step is for you to send us one http: link for a set that you wish to have published with your bio - the POSTER of the contest.
After receiving your bio and http: link, we will give you the dates of the week that your Art Show will be held. On the beginning date of your Exhibition, we will set up a contest with Your Name, bio and link---this is Your Art Show! During the first 3 days of your Art Show / contest, you submit your fabulous creations. You get to choose what we will see!

In the case when someone has accidentally submitted their sets to your Art Show, let one of the moderators know and we will try to remove their sets.
The last 4 days of your Art Show is for everyone to browse through your Exhibit and vote on their favorite 12 sets.
No matter what people vote for—You win!
