Post The Japanese Marie Antoinette?
At the least, I'm sure readers here will fill some sympathy with this poor woman, who apparently (as I recall) didn't want to get married in the first place, but was told it was her "duty":

Quote:
The news media here portrayed her 1993 wedding as the fairy-tale marriage of a commoner to a prince, but then grew increasingly critical of her inability to bear a male heir for the Chrysanthemum Throne. The mounting pressure is widely seen as contributing to her apparent breakdown.

Thank you for the link to the article. It is extremely interesting. I can't help but wonder did Marie Antoinette have a break down that no one was aware that was occuring? Or how did Marie Antoinette really feel about marrying Louis XVI? I don't recall any source stating how she felt.
