Post Bonjour from the US West Coast!
Hello all! My name is Leslie. I'm 22. I've been interested in royalty since I was about 10 years old. The Bourbons, both Spanish and French, the Romanovs, the Prussians, the British, and in particular Queen Victoria and how she is related to every European royal house that exists today. I'm also interested in the genealogy of the royals, and how the cousins ended up marrying cousins. It all still facsinates me. I became interested in Marie Antoinette at about...age 12 or so but I didn't really start looking into her entire story until I was a little bit older. My favorite biography of her is the one by Antonia Fraser. I also own a film documentary by David Grubin; it was aired on KCTS channels about 3 1/2 years ago now. You can find it on amazon.com. I also have a biography by Evelyne Laver, whom is one of the biographers and historians featured in David Grubin's film.

I love Marie Antoinette's story. It is interesting and captivating at the same time.

Welcome, Leslie! Evelyne Lever's biography on Marie Antoinette is very good, I think!
