I suggest you to look some of our topics and discussions since we have talked about so many things and you will find plenty of material :) . See also biographies of Marie Antoinette offered on this site, you will find many useful information. Actually I did one project about the French revolution some time ago and it was a hard work – 20 pages about the revolution only. Here is one text I found helpful, it offers different, cruel perspective of that event. ... icide.html

I would definitely recommend Simon Schama's excellent 'Citizens'. Biographies about Marie Antoinette do have information about the revolution but sometimes it is not always objective and is sympathetic to Antoinette and the royal cause (even though I can understand doing this!). 'Liberty: the lives and times of six women in revolutionary France' by Lucy Moore is an interesting book that looks at the subject through the eyes of French women.

“Love is the emblem of eternity: it confounds all notion of time: effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.”
