I guess the biggest rumor was a joke, spread out when the last son of Gabrielle was born : "was he the child of Vaudreuil, or of the queen, since Mr de Polignac was absent ?"

Isn't it a reliable source ? :lol:

Yes, Pimprenelle, :lol: what a source....When it comes to Gabrielle, rumor is accepted as fact.

Yes, Melly, I have known women, and one dear friend in particular, who are attracted to grouchy old men. :wink: Gabrielle grew up away from her father or any father figure for that matter (she was raised by nuns and a widowed aunt) which may explain her closeness to Vaudreuil. But, as you say, still not enough proof of a full-blown affair.....

Here is an article about Gabrielle:

The looks isn't everything, not for the women or men when they form relationships, especially in the older age after those teenager crushes.
I think it was pretty impossible for a woman and a man to be "only friends" in the eyes of those ever-gossiping courtiers in Versailles. :(

I think precisely the same ! Gabrielle's children look like their mother ! She must have had dominant genes !

So true, Aurora, indeed... In this gossipy environment, just being friends was impossible... It is just like tabloïds always ready to spy you !

I also find that he has the same hair as his mother, but especially the same chin and the same mouth! :D

Yes, that is the biggest one I read, the husband was rumoured to be living in the country or somewhere else when she became pregnant...

Yes, Therese, they say Mr de Polignac was not there, so that he could not have fathered his son. But where was he ? I don't know... never found about it. And is it true, after all ? I don't know either... That's why I tend to say that the most important material we have about Gabrielle de Polignac is... gossips !

As I always say about such matters, what counts is that Gabrielle's husband acknowledged the boy as his own son, gave him his name, and was a father to him. If he had denied paternity, that would be different, but he did not.

I don't know. I guess that this is the only one...It's from Mme. Vigée Le Brun

Did M. de Polignac went to America with Fersen?
