Princess Claude is used to getting her own way. She is very much a rebel and doesn't care who gets hurt while she plays out her wild antics. She is the Wild Card of her family and is often drinking, and looking for sexual fun. She shows affection towards her family, though and is very loyal.
Claude and her mother never got along and was often shipped overseas to be tutored, but would often be found partying.

Catherine was irritated at the fact that prawns were to be served at her funeral due to her daughter, Claude, being allergic to them.
She was believed to have murdered two of her younger sisters out of jealousy when they were found dead. It was assumed that the babies had suffocated because the roses they had pulled off her dress were lodged in their throats.
Upon the request of her sister and Stéphane Narcisse, the dashing Luc Narcisse arrived at French Court to woo and immediately marry Claude.
