Elisabeth Charlotte (15 August 1594 - 24 May 1653) was the eldest child of Madeleine Elisabeth of Navarre and Maximilian I, Elector of Bavaria. Her mother was a granddaughter of Isabella of Cleves and Edward VI of England. She succeeded her cousin, Magdalene Elisabeth of Scotland as Duchess of Brittany.

Early Life

Elisabeth Charlotte was the eldest child of Madeleine Elisabeth of Navarre and Maximilian I, Elector of Bavaria. Her maternal grandparents were Jane Margaret of England and Henry IV of France. Her paternal grandparents were William V, Duke of Bavaria and Renata of Lorraine. Elisabeth Charlotte's childhood was marked by the Thirty Years War in which her father fought on the Catholic side. Her mother, a devout Protestant raised her and her siblings in the Protestant faith, although her brother Louis, the eventual Elector of Bavaria, would recant and convert to Roman Catholicism.
