Summary

To this day Marie Antoinette remains one of history’s most misunderstood heroines. How she triumphed over the petty jealousies and backstairs rivalries of the court, how she sustained a good-hearted but malleable king, and how she was transformed from French queen to Austrian “whore,” is the story told with skill and fascinating detail.

Great Book about the ill-fated Queen!

One of the best books I’ve experienced about Marie Antoinette. A very detailed background and the narrator displayed an excellent performance.

To the Scaffold

Was a good listen with lots of facts written like a novel. But, I could not give it five stars, as I really felt the author copped out at the end. She ran through her death like it was hard for her to speak of. She gave more facts and showed more interest on the death of the king then the queen. Go figure.

wonderfully written and read!

Loved this story, especially Ms Porters narration. I've always believed Marie Antoinette was a very misunderstood historical figure.
