Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Antonia Fraser's lavish and engaging portrait excites compassion and regard for all aspects of the queen, immersing the reader not only in the coming-of-age of a graceful woman, but in the culture of an unparalleled time and place.

Synopsis:

New life of the legendary French queen, Marie Antoinette, which goes beyond the image of the vacuous uncaring aristo, to reveal a woman who was a passionate patron of the arts, and who was the victim of several personal and political slurs and hate campaigns, eventually resulting in her death at the guillotine. "There has long been the need for an authoritative biography of France's last queen. Now, finally, Antonia Fraser has completed the task" Amanda Foreman, "The Observer". 48 colour plates
