Post Re: If you were Marie Antoinette...
I agree Ludy. I’ve always admired Marie for sticking by her husband’s side. It sounds like the sort of thing that would be expected between any married couple; but while facing as much horror as Marie and Louis were, fear could easily cloud over the mind. She was very brave.

As for what I would do if I were Marie, I suppose I would do what everyone else has already stated: not spend outrageous sums on clothing and other frivolous luxuries; spend more time with my husband and less with those who could only do harm to my reputation. But regardless, I believe the public would have still grown to despise Marie no matter what she did. She was hated simply for being Austrian. And I think they were willing to grasp onto any reason they could to hate someone in power.
