88. If you ever see a life size statue of Marie Antoinette you want to hug it.

89. You can empathize with her losses.

90. You actually see her as human. Not as a frivolous girl who just liked to wear pretty dresses.

91. You begin to squeal with glee if you see anything that reminds you of Marie Antoinette i.e. a pretty tea cup.

92. After reading reading these posts you seriously want a cute little lap dog.

93. You get all defensive when someone says "Didn't she get her heard cut off?".

94-when you cried after you first saw a picture of the very guillotine that was used to behead her (posted here on this forum).

102) When your wife starts showing signs of jealousy of someone who's been dead for over 200 years!

103) When you know that if someone knocked over and broke your favourite statuette of her, you would want to hit them!

Or when you learn German to attempt to see what perspective Marie Antoinette was linguistically. ( Not that I have done this at all.Now that I think of it it's not such a bad idea at all.) :)

When you hear the name Marie ..... you automatically fill the "....." with Antoinette.

You desperately want a Marie Antoinette dress! (Who doesn't?)

You twitch when you see that hideous blade that took our Queen's life and twitch. I personally actually admit to this one, including the the second You Know You Love Marie Antoinette When.....

You wonder, how it be like to be the Dauphine? Questions of that sort.

You want to make a move that is historically accurate and pretty i.e dresses like Sophia Coppola's ( certainly more historically based). All right never mind that is something I would LOVE to do. Anything that makes people see Marie Antoinette for who she really is and in a positive book is good! Although it would be difficult to not show a bias if I had to!

Hellou, bonjour! I speak both German and French and they are SO very different! Kudos to MA for mastering French comign from a German background!

Indeed! :) It must have been quite a challenge! I wonder if anyone at Versailles could understand what she was saying? French are German are like day and night!

True! I'm sure some of them could understand her, but then by the time she got to Versailles, she was speaking French. But I'm sure some of the courtiers could speak German.

I was under the impression that even though could speak French well yet that doesn't nesscearily mean that natives will be capable of understanding her for example having an extremely strong accent to the point no one could understand her that is what I meant to say. My apologies for not specifying Mondeskind . Perhaps some courtiers did speak German, so hopefully there wouldn't be too much room for miscommunication. Although that can happen when amongst natives speaking in their native language can have some miscommunications too! Do you know what was the main secondary language in Versailles?
