To this day Marie Antoinette remains one of history’s most misunderstood heroines. How she triumphed over the petty jealousies and backstairs rivalries of the court, how she sustained a good-hearted but malleable king, and how she was transformed from French queen to Austrian “whore,” is the story told with skill and fascinating detail.

I really enjoyed this, I am not the biggest fan of French Revolution history because it think we overlook or are numb to the things that display the anarchy, brutality, and humanity. This was beautifully presented but the audio leaves something to be desired. There was some feedback and messed up audio.
I learned a lot more then I ever had known about this Queen. I had always thought she was a real bust as a queen but now I gained a little respect for her. Thank you
