I am a new member as well;marie antoinette would be my great aunt eleven generations ago. my uncle was the baron de verrier. I adore marie antoinette,her husband and her children and am trying to find their graves, if they have been buried.there seems to be so much controversy about the fact that after they were put into a ditch, they were later disintered during a feast, and the bodies were danced with by the populace. If anyone knows anything about this-I have been trying to track this down for years.I would love for all of them to go to St.Denis.

Hello to everyone, My name is Jacqueline and I am in search of information regarding Marie Antoinette's lost shoe on her way to her sad demise. I am a student, although not a young student at the University of South Carolina majoring in French. One of my professor's proposed the question to the authenticity of the shoe being housed at the Mussee de Carnavalet in Paris. I want to know more about its journey from the scaffold to the museum. I have looked all over the internet and there does not seem to be much information. If anyone has information on this subject or any ideas of where to look, it would be greatly appreciated. I have sent an e-mail to the Chateau de Versailles in hopes that they may be able to assist as well.

Thank,
Jacqueline

Yes I have information on this shoe.

Apparently it was in 1949, along with other royal relics, (Castelot "Le secret de Madame Royale") in a small museum in the Château of Frohsdorf, near Vienna in Austria, where this princess died. I just finished the book so I remember that that information struck me as interesting, so your timing is good. :)

Now I believe the shoe is in the Musées des Beaux Arts in Caen.

However as she had two feet maybe it wasn't the same shoe. All clothes were usually divided up and fought after, torn apart etc right after the execution. So its' likely that both shoes were taken. In those days there was no right and left shoe I believe.

Hello there!

I am Ellendiane. I'm brazilian and a huge fan of history being Marie Antoinette my favorite history icon, I just found out about this forum through a Marie Antoinette fan tumblr and I am very excited about things I saw here. I often read books about her and King Louis XVI. I have watched a great deal of movies and documentaries about her and she inspires me so much... So I'm about to marry and even then I wanted to make a Marie Antoinette inspired wedding even though I don't know if it will be possible this shows how great is my interess on her and on knowing people who also like her story.

Nice to meet you all.
