I've searched various search engines, but so far nothing - would anyone happen to have a good-sized picture or scan of Marie Antoinette's signature on her wedding certificate, with the ink blob/splotch? There's a photo of it in the Grand Palais catalogue book (which I finally received! It's lovely) but it's incredibly small, even when scanned...

There's a picture of her signature from the marriage treaty in Antonia Frasers biography of the Queen, as well. I'm not sure how big it is though, compared to your catalog book...

Do you mean this:

The government seems to intentionally only release a relatively small image to minimize unauthorized reproductions.

Here's the marriage itself for anyone who's never seen this:

Thank you Hilalpetit! I would inquisitively hear what an expert of scripts tells of this document... The signature of the three must symbolze something. By his sign, Louis XV is so lofty, luxuriant and he's aware of it. Signatures of Louis August and poor Marie Antoinette almost fade out compared to the king's...

You welcome Anouk.. I wouldn't know that, thanx for sharing it but it's quite right that their signatures almost fade out comparing with the :king:

Lol I know that but with everything that is going on in that picture I can't really see them :disgust: I think I need a better look at a bigger picture. Can it still be seen anywhere? I would love to see it in person.

If you search the wedding archives of France on various websites you could get a good view. Sorry if I wasn't any help.
