I have never read that she attended the funeral of Jean Jacques Rousseau. May I inquire as to where you have read this fact?

Please read the posts above yours.

Baron, that seems likely, but of course one can never generalise. The problem is that there were such a vast range of monarchical ideas held by different rulers that you can never be sure. Certainly, there were those who didn't care what the custom was, or what was etiquette - quite like Marie, in certain ways.

In fact, I think Joseph and his remaining siblings in Austria attended Marie Therese's funeral, but I haven't had time to check this definitively.
