I would have to agree with them, just because your question is about periods, does not mean that the guys wont get it. :) The would be accutely aware what periods are(especially if they have dealt with a pms-ing woman) :lol:

Yeah :). Plus, really the question was about historical costumes and not about periods. I have to admit that it opened up something that I had not thought of before though. I have no idea what throughout history menstruating women have done. What about in the times before clothing was really worn, at least other than the elementals?

Well never mind :). I guess that any men who were squeamish about that sort of thing would guess from the title what it was going to be about and not open it.

Well...I have heard that Marie loved water and loved to be clean and take a bath almost everyday...so atleast we know that she was fresh and probally felt good when she was having her period.

I didnt know this. That makes me thinks that her periods wouldnt have been too bad for her. I feel so lucky sometimes to live in our days, especially when it comes to hygiene :).

Please, don't call her Marie. All these Habsbourg archuchesses had Marie among their names. Marie was their sint patron. Then followed the real name. It is the same for her mother Marie Therese, for her sisters, Marie Caroline, Marie Amelie, Marie Christine...

Marie Antoinette was called Antoinette or Madame Antoine. She herself signed her first letters to her mother "Antoinette", not used yet to this "Marie" that hed been added.

Then, indeed, she enjoyed water in its every forms, she drank water, she made cascades run in her gardens, she had bathes almost every day, if not every day...

But I am afraid her periods remained something terrible for her, because they were strong and she lost a lot of blood. She sometimes explains it to her mother Marie Therese.

Oh...than please forgive my ignorance. Tis true to address a queen to her formal name.

But i did not know that she had such heavy periods...that must have been horrible. :(

I guess it could have been her physical weakness... :? She often had abdominal pains. And she was very ill while imprisoned in the conciergerie... :(

I heard that in prison she had been bleading alot and that it just didnt stop

Indeed, she had heavy hemorrages. Maybe she had a cancer. Or it could be a fibrome or an early menopausis.

I've seen and own both of them. The 1938 movie went from her just finding out to be queen to her trip to the guillotine. It would have been alot better to have some colour to see all the costumes. They were really good with picking louis auguste because he was shy and on the bigger side too. The only thing they really didnt show was her giving birth to madame royale and the other two sophie and louis joseph but only louis Charles. They also showed when they tried to escape Paris. The 2006 version also was excellent and had some exact quotes from marie but didnt show us the end of her life they showed all atleast the death of the dauphin. They also talked about when Marie Antoinettes mother died. They both were really good but i think the 1938 version is a little bit better.
