Post English Evelyne Lever bio is abriged!
The English translated edition (309 pages) of the Evelyne Lever bio is
a radically abridged version of the French book (originally published
in 1991). The 1996 French edition has 736 pages.

A very interesting article on this matter: ... ntonia.htm

Yes, dear York74... I've read it elswhere too... But the point is: what pages, what passages are missing?!

Just to quote Mozart (in Amadeus) asked by Joseph II to remove some notes of his too long opera: "which ones?"

Anyway, I hope it's not the very end, because I find Lever's narration beautiful. Especialy when she describes the queen climbing the stairs "à la bravade" (out of bravado). We can see her, don't we?
