hi i'm new to the site and was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of primary sources, court records, speeches, pamphelts and letters. i have a project to do and am focousing on Marie Antoinettes political role, both prior to and during the Revolution so anything relating to this would be great.

You can find pamphlets on Gallica (French national library) site. Just google "gallica" and then, once on this site, run a search "Marie-Antoinette".

Another interesting way is to rely on Chantal Thomas' "Wicked Queen". This French historian analysed the image of Marie Antoinette through pamphlets, and her book is translated in English.

Good luck ! :D
