The couple had issue:[1]

Madeleine is the author of "Catherine de Médicis", published in France in 1940.[1]

In 1936 Duke Alfonso Carlos, the last undisputed head of the Carlist movement, appointed her husband Xavier as Carlist "regent". Madeleine actively supported her husband's political activities and social views.[3]

Prince Xavier, a younger son of Robert of Parma, and Madeleine were wed 12 November 1927 at the château de Lignières in Cher.[3] The couple took up residence in the Bourbonnais where Xavier managed Madeleine's farm lands.[3] The marriage was accepted as dynastic at the time by neither Prince Elias of Bourbon-Parma (Xavier's elder half-brother, then acting head of the House of Bourbon-Parma), nor by the senior Bourbons of the Spanish branch (Alphonso XIII), but was later recognized by the Parmesan Duke Robert Hugo,[1] and by the Carlist pretender Alfonso Carlos, Duke of San Jaime.[3]
