    France's iconic queen, Marie Antoinette, wrongly accused of uttering the infamous "Let them eat cake", was alternately revered and reviled during her lifetime. For centuries since, she has been the object of debate, speculation, and the fascination so often accorded illustrious figures in history. Married in mere girlhood, this essentially lighthearted child was thrust onto the royal stage and commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in European history.

    Overall

    History hasn't been kind to Marie Antoinette. I found her to be a very sympathetic and misuderstood woman, who was a victim of the political fervor. One can listen to this book and draw parallels to the damage that gossip and ennuendo could do to current public figures. As to the reviewer who was perturbed by the pronunciation of "murray" rather than "Marie", one has to take in account that it is probably more accurate to the French pronunciation. I appreciated that the reader took pride in proper pronunciation rather than anglicizing foreign names and terms.
