She adopted two (?) children, one thing that horrified many nobles (and not only).


M-A adopted one young boy (can't remember his name) but she nelegected him after the birth of her own children. Eventually the boy turned her during the French Revolution.

He turned on her?

I think that Zoe went with the royal family to the Tuileries...Am I rigth?

I read that Marie Antoinette adopted a boy, named Armand, a girl named Philippine Lambriquet who was renamed Ernestine Lambriquet...Finally, the Queen also adopted another girl, Zoe...

I don't know about Zoé. But Ernestine did. The whole time till Montmédy, she was there ! Which biographer thinks of her ?

About the resource of the information that Ernestine went to the Tuileries...It was you :P

«Ernestine went to the Tuileries with the royal family. Few writers notice her presence, however. She didn't escape to Montmedy, and wasn't sent to the temple neither.» in http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index. ... #msg172624

:wink:

Zoe eventually became a nun. I read somewhere that the queen sent them both away with emigres families - perhaps with the Provences? for their saftety. Ernestine died in exile and Zoe joined the Visitation order. Zoe died at the beginning of the Restoration.

Any liasion between Ernestine and the Comtesse des Ténèbres?

Author:  Therese [ Sun Nov 05, 2006 2:13 pm ]
Post subject: 

No, not in my opinion, dear Jules. One would have to accept that Louis XVI fathered a child out of wedlock.

The idea was suggested by some scholars, anyhow... I sincerely don't know. There is a biography of Madame Royale by Castelot, and also by de Huertas. Very strange...

This site is devoted to Madame Royale, and you'll find discussions about Ernestine-Philippine, on the board :

It is a very sad situation when those you kill must be blamed for their own misfortune. All the horrors the Aristocracy suffered were so terrible that the instigators dare not take responsibility for their own action. She was a woman and Austrian. So they hated her.

Morever Marie-Antoinette was more French than Louis XVI... her father François I was from Lorraine. But people retained only her Autrichien blood...
