From http://www.foodtimeline.org/foodpies.html#lemon

According to the food historians, lemon flavored custards, puddings and pies have been enjoyed since Medieval times. While Renaissance European cooks used whisked egg-whites in several dishes, it was not until the 17th century that they perfected meringue. Lemon meringue pie, as we know it today, is a 19th century product.

Apparently, Marie-Antoinette was rather partial to the contemporary equivalent.
