Lady Spencer was greatly offended and ran out of the palace, waving people aside with her cane.

Fascinating that these aristocratic houses pop up all over the place. Royalty certainly are a good deal more inbre ... erm, interrelated than most families I would think.

Yes, even Marie-Antoinette was related to the Spencers through the Stuarts.

I don't know what the queen thought of Mary Stuart, but I know she was interested in the Stuarts and read Hume's History of England. Artois lived in Scotland for many years. His daughter-in-law, the Duchess de Berry, was obsessed with Mary Stuart, and would dress like her at the costume balls.

Don't forget that Marie-Therese lived with the royal family in Scotland too.

Im very interested in this news that MA was descended from Mary Queen of Scots, does anyone know the descendancy line?

Author:  Therese [ Tue Apr 03, 2007 2:44 am ]
Post subject: 

I don't know the whole line but i know it is from Mary's grandson Charles I's daughter Minette who was Duchesse d'Orleans....

What languages Marie Antoinette spoke? French and English, but anything else, Latin for example?

She spoke Italian quite fluently. She knew it so well that she asked Fersen to correspond in Italian during the revolution. She spoke German of course and French. Then, she knew a bit of Latin I guess
