Post Hello
I love Marie Antoinette since very young. When I had 12 I read Stefan Zweig novel and I was so impressed by the life of this woman. I remember asked in school to my History teacher about Marie Antoinette and all she said to me was: «She was the last queen of France and while the people died with hunger she had fun pretending she was a sheperd...» I got so hungry because I thought so differently, than I started reading and researching everything about her. It became almost an obssession. As a historian is a privilege to me contribute somehow even little by little to change most of people mentality about Marie Antoinette and XVIII century society. And I'm really happy to know that so many people like her and I believe she would be very proud of us all.

Hi, Toinette ! "Bienvenue au club!" Join the club... of obsessed people...
You're right, there's still a lot of work for changing opinions about Marie-Antoinette. Revolutionary propaganda did its job, didn't it ?

So, welcome, dear Toinette ! And let's work together !

Hope I'll read you soon,

te voir encore me rappelle à la vie

Welcome Toinette. Please don't be shy about starting up a new conversation on the forums or joining in with some of the commentary that has already been posted.
