Post Today is the Anniversary of HM's death
I am on the internet at 2.51 in Scotland and in fact Marie Antoinette was in her last hour of her trial 3.51 in France. In another few minutes she would be back in her cell writing her last letter to her sister in law Madame Elizabeth who never received this last letter. Today as for many years I have remembered this date. So today by 11 a.m. in the UK I will remember the beautiful queen on her way to her end. I will also remember the many other innocents who met their death by the horrific people like Robespierre and Fouquer Tinville. They deserved their punishments.

Yes, today marks the 218th anniversary of the death of the Queen.
What does one say.......about such a murder? It still inspires anger and a sense of true sadness that such a horror was committed against a woman and mother.
RIP

Today is a day to remember....so sad to think of the horrible treatment MA recieved at the hands of these monsters. I can't help but wonder if she went to her death with some sort of relief that her 4 years of hell was ending.

I think she surely did. This reminded me on our "last walk" tour in France. Remember Lilly?
I almost feel guilty that we were so cheerful that cold day.

A video about the last days of Marie Antoinette


This is a beautiful and haunting video.

Marija - that walk was a once in a lifetime opportunity, I am so grateful we were a part of it! Even though we were caught up in the joy of meeting in person, we still were focused on the purpose of the day. I will never forget it! Thanks again Baron for including us!!

Naughty by nature! Can you tell me where on the Rue St. Honore it was that David did his nasty little sketch of MA on her way to the guillotine? What was the cross street on that corner?
