The national bestseller from the acclaimed author of The Wives of Henry VIIIFrances beleaguered ueen Marie Antoinette wrongly accused of uttering the infamous Let them eat cake was the subject of ridicule and curiosity even before her death; she has since been the object of debate and specu I don't know why it took me so long to pick up this book Ms Fraser does an excellent job telling the story of this misrepresented and tragic ueen She was truly a political pawn throughout her life as most young women of her rank were for hundreds of years Although I knew her doomed fate I learned so much that took place between the storming of the Bastille and march on Versailles to the untimely death of Louis and Marie Antionette If you enjoy historical accounts of royalty how they lived loved suffered etc with political intrigue then I highly recommend this book

Marie Antoinette The JourneyLation and the fascination so often accorded tragic figures in history Married in mere girlhood this essentially lighthearted privileged but otherwise unremarkable child was thrust into an unparalleled time and place and was commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in history An This may be well researched but the author chooses to make herself look verbose rather than write clearly Way too often it was impossible to understand what she was trying to say The book could have used a good editor Also in the Kindle edition Footnote links are often thrown together with other citations and so they do not work For example a citation that might be #12 is together with a footnote that might be #68 so the link says 1268 and therefore does not bring you to anything except a dictionary explanation of the #1268 Choose another Marie Antoinette biographer This one is a hot mess
