Hello Papillon and welcome! I would ask her what she most wanted to accomplish in her lifetime! :)

good question! i think i would ask her how she felt about being married so young -- she knew it was her duty, but how does such a young girl really feel? it's hard to imagine what it was like for her.

Hello and welcome Papillon :D Love your name....

I would ask MA: "if you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?"

Good question!
I would ask Marie-Antoinette :"Do you regret your life? But whatever the answer: cheer and thank you!"

I guess I would ask "What would you have done differently?" But that implies that she did something worth doing differently! :D

Welcome papillon !

If I had the chance to meet Marie Antoinette for five minutes, I would not loose time in asking questions. I would tell her "hurry up, my Queen, let's run away from here!".

I would say to her that after 250 years people understand her life more better than in revolution time,and that is sad she lived in a court of bad people that always did bad things and talked bad about her when she only wanted to live with her childs in the trianon,in the farm, enyoing private and easy life,she wanted to be french but french never accepted her and she was always the foreigner...i would say i feel so sad for all this things she lived..when her childs died(2 first)and later the dauphin after that bad life he had..im mother and i can imagine the pain she can have if i say all this to her.But i think she lived good moments too and i wish i can hear her telling me when she was really happy,what things she enjoyed..maybe she can say more happy things than sad things,cause i know she was valiant and happy person

May be...Marie-Antoientte is less hated than during the revolution it is true, but false rumours always exist :?

Very true about the rumours. France is still devided about her, half of it absolutely hates her, and the other half think she's martyr of some sorts.

If i met her, i would... umm be speechless probably! If i did manage to collect myself i would want to know ( even if it is very intrusive and absolutely NONE of my business really) if she could explain the changes and fluctuations n her marriage. If she regrets anything in it, what things affected it, and how they stood in one another's eyes in the end.

Wow that would be wonderful!

Many :lol:

But much of dresses were not never used by Marie-Antoinette and were redistributed to employees of Versailles :D
