Anne Claude Louise d'Arpajon was born on March 7, 1729 as a French aristocrat. Not much is known of her childhood which she spent at her father's marquisat Saint-Germain-lès-Arpajon. Anne married Philippe de Noailles, Duc de Noailles which made her the Duchesse de Noailles on November 17, 1741. It was a very advantageousness match since the Noailles family was one of the leading noble families in France.
Four years later in 1774 Anne was fired by Marie Antoinette from her post which meant that Anne lost a valuable position at court. Anne consequently joined the company of the Mesdames Tantes at Bellevue were the young Queen was not thought highly of. Anne would have six children with her husband but three of them would die in their childhoods. When the revolution swept through France it did not spare the Comte and Comtesse de Noailles. Anne and Philippe were both executed on June 24, 1794.
