That's impossible. Gabrielle died with Marie Antoinette, a few weeks after the queen. 1793.

It is really strange indeed... But this person belonged inevitably to the Yolande 's family or her husband's family.

Gabrielle never wrote memoirs ? :shock: There are memoirs written by Diane de Polignac. One book is available on gallica, and you can copy it for free. For the other one, you need to go to Swiss, château d'Oron... :?

I don't believe that Gabrielle wrote her memories... I had sought on Amazon or Chapitre, but without result... :?

Must be those written by Diane de Polignac. Too many people (even scholars!) mistake Gabrielle for Diane and Diane for Gabrielle.

Yes it is a real possibility Pimprenelle :lol:

Because if Gabrielle has really written her memories, it would be a first news :D

Ohh, in the first one, it's the wife of the son of Gabrielle, for sure! But he wasn't Duc until 1818 :?

Google Book is a very good resource. I've read Louis XVIII's memoires, and he speaks good things about Gabrielle
