Post Comtesse de Noailles
I was wondering whether anyone had any information about Madame Etiquette? There was hardly anything about her life on Wikipedia, and I am unable to find any portraits of her anywhere.

Any leads on the sour old bat? :wink:

That is highly amusing! It's Brilliant! :lol: I believe the Noailles family some how got their power and wealth from Louis the 14th! I don't remember how because it was extremely complicated.

Post Re: Comtesse de Noailles
well we must remember how long she was a dauphine, and then again Madame etiquette was very distraught over MA actions. So i suppose she was fed up, although i dont know the exact reason. sorry :[

It's all right. I guess she simply grew tired of her!

Perhaps Comtesse de Noailles was dust by the time Marie Antoinette became queen! :lol:

I believe she had good intentions and was a good person, however I think the way she treated Marie Antoinette should have been better, if she had been nicer to her.

yes like that!, i just think that she was one of those poeple who thought they should be higher up on the food chain so to speak....
she was very serious though. She took her position and job very serious as well, very pofressional.

Anne Claude Louise d'Arpajon 1729 - 1794. She was most certainly a product of the world she was born into. It was the reign of Louis XV she would grow up in and she became a Lady of Honor to Queen Marie Leszczynska. Obviously quite well versed - she said that even the smallest etiquette must not be overlooked. This woman took her job very seriously as she was preserving the continuity of court rituals and the way the Monarchy presented itself. It is too bad that her demeanor was so severe and strict - had she been able to lighten up a bit she would have probably been a little more successful in making Marie Antoinette understand why this etiquette was so important - instead she just became a kind of joke.

Along with her husband and some other family members, Madame Etiquette was guillotined in June 1794.
