Hey ! Enjoy your time here. Great choice of avatar.)


Are you from the US ?

French is very difficult, so I say BRAVO.


I do not know what to advise with regards to the books. I am sure you'll find something appropriate in the book section.

Hi and welcome to the forum! :)

You could try Antoinia Fraser's 'The Journey".

Don't expect reading about history to be necessarily simple....you have to ask yourself what you like most in life and read about that, and maybe its' more fashion and such things? :) Nothing is simple about Marie Antoinette and the late 18th century in France. That's half the problem, she was judged far too simply, and for me was a complex person.

Welcome!

One of the best books I've ever read about Marie is: "Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution" by Caroline Weber. It's an easy to understand biography of her life and how her fashion choices showed her inner nature and ultimately affected her fate. Since you're into 18th century fashion, this would be the PERFECT read for you, and especially if you're just getting started with Marie.

Amazing!

So far from the settings of Marie Antoinette's life and Versailles!

She would have been so charmed to think she could inspire the interest of people on the other side of the world 220 years after her death! :)
