Since Montenegro had separated, I live in Serbia only. I speak Serbian which is the same as Croatian (some words are different but basically it’s the same language). Serbian is similar to Russian language, at least foreign people think that when they compare what they hear. :)

I don’t know anything about Zoë.

That is true. Marie Antoinette was given a black child, as a present from Senegal :roll: . She called he Jean Amilcar, had him baptized and kept him with her at he court till October 1789. Then, she had to put him into an institution for children in Saint Cloud. She paid for his monthly fees as long as she could, till August 10th, 1792, when the royal family was imprisoned in the temple tower.

You can find relevant informations about these children Marie Antoinette adopted in this wonderful book by Herman and Jallut, Marie Antoinette, l'impossible bonheur, and also on this site about Madame Royale :

Zoé is also in Vidal's novel Trianon. She is shown being with the family as early as 1787, although in reality she was not with them until they were at the Tuileries.

Why would she include this incorrect fact if she is a stickler for historical truths?

Perhaps because Trianon is a novel, not a history book. Historical fiction allows for some artistic license, if it is necessary for the flow of the story, and as long as the integrity and personality of the characters is not impugned. Most other novels about Marie-Antoinette do not mention Ernestine or Zoé AT ALL.

Ernestine was a girl whom Marie-Antoinette adopted to be a companion for Madame Royale.
