Post Varia
I think it is worth to create the topic where we can find some some varia on Marie Antoinette.

For example I am still under impression that over 200 years after her death they found some needles of the queen in her bedroom. It is fascinating to discover such thing, to touch it and this way to touch the history. Then you feel connection with that person, those times. And everything becomes so real. I can imagine people who discover it...

If you know other varia, just let us know...

Firs of all I meant they found PINS not needles, but I still remember the title of the old Smokie hit "Needles and pins", so I have made a mistake. :D

Oh, Loius Charles, don't worry :) my English is not perfect and I don't understand everything at once. I hope I used the word in a proper way. I mean talking about various small interesting things refering to Marie Antoinette, just like the info with the pins. :)

Ah ok I understand now! :D

But you are amply right !
All interests me about Marie-Antoinette, the important things but also the small things like the pins! I adore to study her musical tastes, her food tastes, her leisures, her practices, her manias, until in depth! :wink:

For example also: why her mother Marie-Thérèse gave her this first name "Marie-Antonia": according to Evelyne Lever, it's for the honor of Saint-Antoine de Padou. I know it is a detail but it interests me! :lol:

Yes, June 13 was her name-day, Saint Anthony's day.

I think trivia might be the word you're looking for.
