was awarded the lovely Marie Antoinette award by -david-. reminded me of the 2006 movie of with Kirstin Dunst casting as marie, i had found history so much more interesting n colorful than expected.
Queen Marie Antoinette was the epitome of a real, fun, fearless woman who was never afraid of getting what she wants.
Marie Antoinette (1755-1793) started out an archduchess of Austria. at the age of 14, she married Louis-Auguste. in 1774, her husband ascended the throne as Louis XVI, and she was titled the Queen of France. after 7 years of marriage she gave birth to 4 children. during the Reign of Terror (French Revolution), her husband was deposed. in 1793, she was executed of treason, joining her husband's death nine months later.
