Spit? I think it threw mud at her reputation and character to the point where it was black.

To me, spit is more disgusting than mud.

That's true....it was a crime of lèse majesté...but then in order to cover up something that would have brought scandal on her she would have had to seem offended by the very idea of that midnight meeting. For sure things got out of hand and Lamotte proved herself to be scheming and unscrupulous. So just maybe something that started out as playful fun got out of hand? I don't know, I know its' very unlikely, but I believe she was capable of this, she never lost that playful and slightly reckless nature. I have never idealized the Queen, that's part of the reason she fascinates me....and don't forget she loved acting, the world of Versailles was in some ways her stage.

also because the idea that Rohan could think to meet her alone at night was something contrary to her dignity, and this was one of the aspects which made her most upset about the whole affair.

Yes, I'm pretty sure, that I wouldn't be as fascinated with her if she hadn't been reckless and playful.
But, I do like imagining her looking on in disbelief.

It's not that I idealize her, it's just that I think her playfulness had some limits. She was playful and reckless when she was young, but she grew up she was not exactly reckless, I think...ust witty and playful. And I think that joking and playing games was ok, but she had a very precise idea about dignity. That's why I can't see her hiding at night and watching the Cardinal meeting a woman who was supposed to be her. I think this wouldn't have suited her idea of royalty.

Or acting according to her own morals, or what she feels like what being a decent person is.

I am sorry, are you suggesting that the queen was secretly watching the “supposed to be her meeting with the cardinal”! What gives you that idea? :shock:

I am sorry if I misunderstood your discussion. :oops:
