Maria Antonia o Parma (Maria Antonia Giuseppa Walburga Anna Luisa Vicenza Margherita Caterina; 28 November 1774 – 20 Februar 1841) wis a Princess o Parma, daughter o Ferdinand I o Parma an his wife, Maria Amalia o Austrick. Contrary tae what has been frequently stated, she wis not named after her aunt, Marie Antoinette, who wis not her godmother. Maria Antonia's godparents were her uncle, Joseph II, Haly Roman Emperor, an her faither's aunt, Maria Antonia o Spain, Queen o Sardinie, after whom the princess wis named. A quiet person, Maria Antonia never married and became an Ursuline novice in 1802. The following year, on 22 April 1803, she officially received the habit o an Ursuline nun an changed her name tae Sister Louise Marie (Luigia Maria). After the daith o her mither in 1804, her sister moved tae Roum. Maria Antonie remained in Prague until the fall o Napoleon, after which she returned tae Parma. During the following years she led a quiet an modest life in the Ursuline convent in Parma. After many years of living there, on 9 May 1831, she moved to the Convent o St Agatha in Roum, where she died in 1841.
