Everyone is fascinated by Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France, by her temperament and independence, her escapades and frivolities. A great lover, rebellious and defiant, she escaped into games and lived grandly, angering her subjects, who never forgave her for her excessive spending. Reviled by those who once adored her, she spent her last days imprisoned in the Conciergerie, but was royal right up to her death. From her powdered pink boudoirs to her apartments filled with lacquered furniture, from her Trianon, which she refurnished entirely and to which she brought her lovers, to the laiterie, where she took pride in playing the farmer, this book is a visual introduction to the woman who influenced her time with her style, independence, mystery, and glamour.
