Hi everyone!

I'm so glad to have stumbled on this web site and am eager to join in the discussions with people who are as passionate about Marie-Antoinette and French history as I am!I've always been fascinated by European history, but my interest in Marie-Antoinette has predominantly been a personal, rather than academic, one. (That said, my current research project focuses on the creation of the Marie-Antoinette legend, so I suppose that doesn't really apply anymore!) In any case, I really became interested in her life after reading Chantal Thomas's "Les adieux à la reine" when I was in high school.

Other interesting things about me -
I am bilingual (French and English) and have a reading knowledge of Latin, which is actually more useful than I thought it would be. I studied art history and French lit at university, and I'm working on an MAT in history education at the moment. I really love to knit and scrapbook, so I'm always working on some kind of crafty project when I'm not working or doing homework!

You all seem like such a wonderfully knowledgeable and friendly group, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
