Anna Leszczyńska reportedly lived with her son and his family in his exile after the deposition of 1709, when he moved from Poland to Sweden, in 1714 to Zweibrücken in Germany, and finally, in 1718, to France. Her relationship with Stanislaw was reportedly not happy at this point, as she felt disappointment over the loss of his royal position and exile and blamed this on the actions of Stanislaw, in which she was joined by her daughter-in-law Catherine Opalińska.
Through her son she was the grandmother of Maria Leszczyńska, who became queen of France by marriage to Louis XV in 1725, and therefore the great-great-grandmother of Louis XVI, Louis XVIII, and Charles X.
