Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Did all the firstborns die?
וְעָבַרְתִּ֣י בְאֶֽרֶץ־מִצְרַיִם֮ בַּלַּ֣יְלָה הַזֶּה֒ וְהִכֵּיתִ֤י כָל־בְּכוֹר֙ בְּאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַ֔יִם מֵאָדָ֖ם וְעַד־בְּהֵמָ֑ה וּבְכָל־אֱלֹהֵ֥י מִצְרַ֛יִם אֶֽעֱשֶׂ֥ה שְׁפָטִ֖ים אֲנִ֥י ה׃
For that night I will go through the land of Egypt and strike down every first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and I will mete out punishments to all the gods of Egypt, I am the LORD.
All firstborn males and females died.
The only exception was Batya, the daughter of Pharaoh, who was spared in the merit of having saved Moshe, and Pharaoh himself.
Even Egyptian firstborns who were abroad at the time of the plague, died.
(Shemot Rabbah 18:3; Schulchan Aruch OC 470, Rashi)
