A lot of interesting detail about the French Revolution and the aftermath that I had never heard before so that kept me reading but I had 2 big issues with this book1 It s written as though the French royalty were saints as if everything everyone besides Marie Antoinette Louis the 16th and Marie Therese did was right and the rest were wrongEven the adjectives she uses for everyone else are negative even though I m not sure she really has enough historical info to describe some of these people Yes what happened to them was gruesome and cruel and the French Revolution was extremely bloody and violent But the royalty weren t blameless in everything that happened For instance one of the reasons the family did not escape before they were guillotined was that Marie Antoinette went on a shopping spree buying a whole new set of clothes and all sorts of perfumesetc that tipped off the revolutionaries that they were trying to flee She keeps trying to endear us to the royal family by saying things like the revolutionaries didn t even let them change their clothes for a whole day Not sure that makes me feel so bad for them compared to the common French citizen who didn t have enough to eat2 The description of the book talks about the theory of the Dark Countess and a potential switch after Marie Therese escaped the prison with her half sister However that s barely touched on in the book and most of the discussion of this is left to an Afterword almost like the author forgot to address it until then So if you are really interested in that story this isn t the book for you It s still worth a read if you are interested in the history post revolution of the French royalty and Europe in general in the 1800s Would have never learned that there are a bunch of people who are direct descendants of the King who still claim the French throne today in Europe Super Pose Book Nude Part 7 (Model (Model : Nanami Matsumoto) [JAPANESE EDITION](Cosmic Art Graphics) スーパー・ポーズブック ヌード編7 (コスミック・アート・グラフィック) uses for everyone else are negative even though I m not sure she really has enough historical info to describe some of these people Yes what happened to them was gruesome and cruel and the French Revolution was extremely bloody and violent But the royalty weren t blameless in everything that happened For instance one of the reasons the family did not escape before they were guillotined was that Marie Antoinette went on a shopping spree buying a whole new set of clothes and all sorts of perfumesetc that tipped off the revolutionaries that they were trying to flee She keeps trying to endear Autopornography: A Memoir of Life in the Lust Lane (Haworth Gay Lesbian Studies) until then So if you are really interested in that story this isn t the book for you It s still worth a read if you are interested in the history post revolution of the French royalty and Europe in general in the 1800s Would have never learned that there are a bunch of people who are direct descendants of the King who still claim the French throne today in Europe

After reading many biographies on Marie Antoinette I knew she had four children two died as children one Louis XVII at the Temple Prison in Paris and the eldest Marie Th r se survived But Madame Royale as Marie Th r se was known as eldest daughter of the King not only survived but went on to live a long and eventful life Born after years of a childless marriage between Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette Marie Th r se named after her grandmother Austrian Empress Maria Theresa had a lavish childhood at Versailles She had loving parents and siblings she adored But her world came tumbling down with the French Revolution I very much enjoyed Nagel s portrait of the Revolution never forgetting Marie Th r se s point of view while in their house arrest in the Tuileries or during their ill fated escape to Varennes The chapters describing their life at the Temple Prison are heartbreaking descriptions of the lonely teenager locked into a disgusting cell having already lost her father not knowing her mother and beloved aunt Madame Elisabeth had been guillotined and often hearing her little brother being tortured And yet is hard to pity Marie Th r se she comes accross as an incredibly strong and confident young woman and it s easy to see how she would always survive Once the Directory comes into power Marie Th r se s life changes she manages to escape to her mother s birthplace of Austria and her new life finally begins As a pawn in the European marriage market she stays in Vienna until her marriage to her first cousin the Duc D Angoul me son of the future Charles X Alongside her uncle Louis XVIII Marie Th r se would become a powerful woman going through her many grievances in life with extreme dignity and her head always held high Marie Th r se believed in her duty to the King and France over anything and her piety and capacity for forgiveness were remarkable She does truly come to life through Nagel s words and I really could not stop reading about her story My only problems with the book were the lack of notes but the research is so incredible I can overlook it and how little the relationship between Duc and Duchesse D Angoul me was analyzed But overall the book was fantastic and I m glad to know about Marie Th r se s life Napoleon called her the only man in her family and he was not mistaken
