The End of Marie Antoinette!


Poor Woman im Republican and i no great Love for Monarchie but Guillotined a Woman Queen or Not a Mother is rude .
I understand the Logic after the Political Point of Wiew but after Human Point of Wiew is really ....Horrible
I preferred the Republic guards the former royal family in hostages and exchanges with the French soldiers Prisoners of Prussians or Austrians .Or exiled to North America

it was very sad. it would have been so much better if they could have been sent to live in exile somewhere. or they could just have gone on having a constitutional monarchy.

Marie Antoinette strange destiny indeed
Traitor yes she betrayed to Mercy and Fersen the plans of the French generals
But i another Side is hard for a Queen or Monarch to watch the World ,their World of Aristocratie and Noblesse sudenly fall!
Frivole Marie Antoinette love Game and lost Fortune, Jewels, Gift etc and she a never realised the MisÚre of the People
Loyal to Louis XIV humm she have clearly has romantic relationships with Axel von Fersen.
Very Conservative yes queen urged the king to resist the Assembly's reforms
Extravagante yes but like Other Richs Women in 1789 she not a exception

well, why do you think that she deserves our compassion more than for example poor comtesse du Barry? From those 2 women I belive that madame du Barry should have been spared, before the queen.

I don't think it is entirely true that she was unaware of the troubles of the people. She and Louis both gave generously to the poor at times of hardship. She was extravagent, but as Queen she was expected to be a leader of fashion. in fact, it was hard for her to do anything right. She was criticised for the extravagance of her dress, but then when she adopted a simpler style of dress she was criticised for that too. She couldn't win really.

Marie Antoinette's frivolous behavior irritated people before revolution, she involved Louis 16 into conspiracies. But of course she didn't deserve such pitiful destiny. Revolutionaries tried to humiliate the queen, it's especially disgusting that they accused her of depravity of her son.
