Publisher's Summary

Her name was Marie Antoinette. She was the last queen of France and among the most notorious of royalty ever to wear the crown. But besides the tales that would make The National Enquirer blush, just what do we know about Marie Antoinette? While the peasants of France were starving for lack of bread, did she really say, “Let them eat cake!”? Or was it all a carefully crafted smear campaign? 

Inside, you will hear about:

  • Groomed to become queen
  • The failed wedding night
  • Madame Deficit
  • The roots of revolution
  • Under the protection of Lafayette
  • The last French king and queen
  • And much more!

Animosity against Marie Antoinette, the Austrian-born woman who many French citizens viewed as a transplanted upstart, had been brewing for several years. But was there any truth to their claims of the queen squandering resources and neglecting the lives of her subjects? 

In this audiobook, we seek to cut through centuries of bias and preconceived notions when it comes to Marie Antoinette. Never mind what you may think you know about this sensational sovereign; here, we seek to find the real person behind the historical quips and catchphrases. 

Come along as we rediscover the life and legend of the ill-fated last queen of France - Marie Antoinette.

what a shame

This book is read by an American which just didn't feel right and the repetition was offputting from chapter one. Didn't get through it.
