She loved to play the harp. Music was introduced very early in her life. Hunting was a sport of the women back then and it was very common. The heavy Austrian winters meant that Marie Antoinette could look forward to winter sports. She made the outfits and jewelery more extravagant in conjunction with the addition of higher hairstyles.

She was not known for being a big eater, she like light things like chicken and fish, and hot cocoa. I am not entirely sure what date their marriage was consumated, Fraser's biography notes that Emporer Joseph (Antoinette's brother) reported to Maria Teresa that the 'great work' had been achieved shortly before Louis' 23rd birthday (August 23). Antoinette wrote to her mother in a ecstatic letter dated 30 August that he had finally 'made' her his wife; this would of been in 1777, exactly 7 years after their marriage.

I read just some half an hour ago the part in Lever's biography about this! It says it happened in the morning of August 18th 1777, at about 10 o' clock, when Marie Antoinette was just emerging from her bath; then on the 30th she wrote the famous letter to her mother...

Pardon, but Louis basically grabbed her as she arose from the bath and 8) ?

They had been working up to that moment little by little-- it did not just happen out of the blue.

Oh, I don't know how it actually happened :lol: I just read this. But yes, I think it was little by little, and then in the end they were able to succeed

thanks everyone. August 30th is an important date for me, thats when i met my husband and i was 14 years old, 8 years later i had my daughter who is now 4. Almost like la Reine. Im glad to say i have so much in common with her, i felt so connected with her immediately after reading her biography.

That is how Naslund makes it happen in Abundance, but I thought it was just her invention! I guess not, and that proves one more inaccuracy in the Coppola movie....

According to Fraser's biography, she was one of the first people to have braces to straighten her teeth!

I don't know what really happened to Antonia's teeth... :oops: A few months before her marriage, they had to arrange them, because they were not right. How could they arrange her mouth so that she had a beautiful smile in so little time ? Later, her dentist in France would regret that so many theeth were taken away.

Could braces help a little in the short term? How could removing lots of teeth in the past help her smile, for she was said to have had a most dazzling one.
