Bonjour cheries!

I was watching the Kirsten Dunst film (again) today and I would love to know what the word that Aunt Sophie uses (during the scene where she and Aunt Victoire are talking to Antoinette on the sofa) that sounds like "antischeaseaux"... I would also love to know how to spell it properly haha!

Can anyone help me? :!:

She means "anti-Choiseul". Choiseul was a cabinet minister in Louis XV's government and the Aunts were in an opposing faction. Choiseul was an ally of La Pompadour and was instrumental in arranging the alliance between Austria and France (represented by the marriage of Louis Auguste and Marie Antoinette). The Aunts were against this alliance.

Were all of Louis Auguste's aunts such acrimonious in real life? I read somewhere that one of Louis XV's daughters, Princess Louise was a nice, charitable lady who joined a convent. Did she meet MA?
