Simon, the cobbler, was in charge of the Dauphin? A cobbler? Dear God, it is more than I can bear...

Deborah Cadbury's book explains the DNA testing and results - it was proved through DNA testing with strands of Marie Antoinette's hair to be the little dauphin's heart. If you think that the story of Louis XVI & Marie Antoinette makes you sick - do some research into what was done to this CHILD. It will make your blood shiver to think any little boy was treated the way grown men treated this child. One of the saddest things imaginable. So, add child murderers to the list of qualties the revolutionaries possessed.

American Book Exchange (abe.com) has several of Elena Vidal's books available as well as thousands of books on Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI et.al. It's always my first stop for books (many are used and cheap); I've never been disappointed.

Happy hunting!

According to Deborah Cadbury, based on the strands of hair found in Empress Maria Theresa's rosary, the heart belonged to a "child of a Habsburg princess" which means it *probably* belonged to the Dauphin but there is no way to prove it with 100% accuracy.

That's good to know. I never thought to look there.

The hairs taken from the rosary belonged to older sisters Johanna-Gabriela (d.1762, age12) and Maria-Josepha (d.1767, age16). Marie Antoinette's hair was deemed too precious (pg 260 - Cadbury). Although there were 2 sources thought to have MA's hair - one in a museum and another from a private collection - (pgs. 260-61) - you are correct, Therese - the hair ultimately used for their confirmation was the sister's hair (pg 270).
Pg. 271- "The comparasion of the DNA appeared to show beyond all reasonable doubt that the heart came from a child that was maternally related to the Haspburg family" another quote "The scientific tests can only show the heart in the crypt has to belong to the son of a maternal relative of the Haspburg family".

Artois - I ordered 4 books from your site suggestion - Thanks!
