She was the daughter of August Aleksander Czartoryski, one of the leaders of the Familia, and Maria Zofia Czartoryska. In her youth, she loved her cousin, Stanisław August Poniatowski, later elected King of Poland, but was unable to marry him due to the objections of her father, who thought him not sufficiently rich or influential.
She was a member of the Women's Adoption Lodge of the Polish Freemasons. Because of her liking for blue, which she often wore, she was called the "Blue Marquise".
