Marie-Antoinette's Sense of Humor

MA 01

Another charming article by Elena Maria Vidal, who knows more about Marie-Antoinette and the Bourbons than I ever will. In spite of her lively sense of fun, Miss Vidal also notes, Marie-Antoinette had high moral standards, although this is rarely discussed. With the support of her husband, King Louis XVI, the Queen tried to reform the morals of the court of Versailles.

I'm glad you read and enjoyed them- I always wonder if people follow the links to other blogspot blogs as it doesn't seem to show up on my site stats.
