I forgot to mention the author Therese, sorry. C'est un écrivain français, son nom est Georges Bordonove, et j'ai quatre livres écris par lui: la collection est appellé "Les Rois q'ont fait la France", et j'ai Henri IV, Louis XIV, Louis XV et Louis XVI, mais je manque Louis XIII, que n'ai pu trouver ici. Ce sont très très interessantes, Bordonove est un grand écrivain, he is objective, accurate and scrupulous about real History (he is a true Historian I think), but his way is very lively and full of life, and there are always some vivid stories and descriptions about the characters. J'aime beacoup!

Thank you for mentioning your source, Archiduque. I know Bordonove too.

I find the description true enough but like it was said before Louis XVI didnt get heavy until his thirties and before ( in all the references i've read ) said that he had a very nice physique. Must have been all that hunting :) I just wanted to point out that, from what i've read, the royal couple actually grew together , and not so apart. I'm pretty sure that they had more in common than that , although probably more in essential personality (like kindness) , than their interests.I found it kind of interesting that the king was so meticulous and precise in everything.... but his appearance/ 8)

Following Marie Antoinette's letters to friends and to her mother, she and her husband had different tastes and often were separate. Paul and Pierrette Girault de Coursac made interesting analyses about their marital life.
