Peut-être they pulled molars to make room for straightening the front teeth?

I know M. Andre! I thought it was just her fancy! That seems random, just getting out of the bath tub thinking about putting your clothes on and BAM! Your marriage is consummated. Since she was in little (a chemise) or nude I suppose it would have made the process to engage in sexual activities easier, due to the fact women did wear so much clothing then! *wink wink* *nudge nudge*

Don't mind me, I tend to make smutty jokes, my apologies, I couldn't help myself. Sophia Coppola is incredibly inaccurate it makes me feel rather angry, however she showed Marie Antoinette in a more sympathetic light which is always good though. :)

Gluck was Marie Antoinette's music instructor.

Maybe they were too close together? They remove teeth now before putting on braces (sometimes) maybe they did it back then too?

I have two points to make if you don't mind:
1. there no evidence that Louis consummated the marriage in finality while she was in her bathing room. If it exists, please cite the source and please don't use fiction as a source. and
2. I looked up orthodontia online and forms of it have existed for thousands of years. I was surprised to say the least. :lol:

I agree, I never heard of such a detail. However, I think I have read that it happened in the morning. Ambassadors' reports are apt to be very detailed on that matter, so these sources might exist. As for orthodontia, devices called "pélicans" indeed existed. And Marie Antoinette's had to endure several extractions of teeth, which would later appall her French dentist.

This last post is no doubt from someone who was banned from the French forum for writing exactly the same stupid thing as here over again. Its' over to you Adrienne! :wink:

That does sound rather exciting to say the least! I wonder how often she bathed...

It does sound quite exciting, but how true is it?

I should probably clarify here. I was skeptical of that those were the details of how her marriage was consummated that's all, it seems too strange for lack of a better word.
