Yes when M.A. met Polignac, Lamballe took a step down, as it were. But after Polignac fled the revolution, didn't Lamballe come to Marie's side in her time of need? :?

severina, yes, especially for her fate in the end :( I wonder if Lamballe had a certain 'knowing' about her position and that of Polignac so her change of relations with M.A. may not have affected her. Didn't Lambelle have a strong countenance and she was secure in her position ?

I my view, Marie Antoinette's feelings for princess de Lamballe are more difficult to understand than for duchess de Polignac, for we still can read letters Marie Antoinette wrote to Mme de Polignac. Alas... most of the letters to Mme de Lamballe are apocryphal.

An apocryphal document is attributed to a person, while, actually, it was made by a forger.
