Claude of France (October 14, 1499July 20, 1524) was the daughter of Louis XII of France and Anne of Brittany.

Instead she became the Queen consort of France by marrying the next King of France, Francis I of France.

Henry II of France was Claude's son.

After she got married Claude spent the rest of her life having babies. She died when she was only 24.
