Rate this:
Marie Antoinette was a child of 14 when her mother, Empress of Austria, arranged for her to leave her family, her country, and her home to become the wife of 15-year-old Dauphin, the future King Louis XVI of France. Far from home and thrust into the role of wife, and queen, Marie Antoinette lived a brief--but astounding--life. Naslund reveals a Marie Antoinette who rebelled against the formality and rigid protocol of the court; an outsider who became the target of a revolution that ultimately decided her fate. Naslund has created a portrait of a woman very different from the figure we think we know.
