Marie-Antoinette frees her Unpublished portrait of a fashion icon
We know Marie-Antoinette above all through the clichés that have come down to us and which peddle an image of her often in charge. Frivolous, wasteful, unfaithful, "Madame Déficit", then "Madame Veto" was in most of the stories the hated queen, the "Austrian" traitor to the fatherland.
This book aims to shake up preconceived ideas; it tells the story of the arrival of a fifteen-year-old girl at the Court of Versailles who will be led to change the mindset of her time by attacking the shackles: etiquette but also fashion and many other areas. The author comes back to the "affair of the necklace" and other scandals that tarnished the image of Marie-Antoinette by giving her version of the facts in an objective way, far from any passion.
We then discover the destiny of a woman crushed by history whose nuanced portrait brings her closer to us.
