I read Fraser's Journey-book and she said Marie Antoinette had ladies which were dames du palais. What were these ladies' stuff to do (helping MA for example)?

Thanks Louis-Charles!

Did every noble woman had dames du palais or ladies-in-waiting?

Every member of the royal family had attendants to wait on them. I would imagine that leading noble families had some sort of assistance. I can hardly imagine that, for example, the Duchesse de Polignac would lay out her own clothes!

No, Madame_Amelia, the last person who would have to do that would have been not Polignac. Any member of the nobility had servants. 'Twas just the way it was.

I said that I couldn't imagine Polignac would do it!

Our family history records that Perpetue De Paul de Lamanon d'Albe ( born 29/04/1768) was daughter of Duc Andre Auguste de Paul de Lamanon d'Albe from Salon de Provence, and educated at St Cyr, Paris.
I have found no records of her having been a lady in waiting at Versailles, but that was her story, passed down after she fled France to Lausanne. Some time later, her brother Pierre, the prebendery at the cathedral at Aix en Provence was a witness at her wedding to JRJWT Liardet in Hamburg 1794, but was guillotined following a return to France after this date. The story we heard was that Perpetue and Pierre escaped across to Switzerland by painting themselves in walnut juice and hiding in a dung cart. I would love to verify her connection to Versailles.
