Marie Antoinette.....A Porn in their game


Alliances were shifting, that upstart Prussia was
becoming too powerful and threatening in Europe,
and Britain was always perfidious out there in the briney.

The marriage of Marie Antoinette to the Dauphin of France was to set the seal on the alliance of Austria and France.... two countries hithertoo bitter enemies the Hapsburgs and Bourbons fighting over territories in France Germany and Italy.
But alas, it would all end in tears... the French population
eventually resentful of the "German bitch" suspecting her of salting their money back to Austria and 100 other misdemeanors.

"Pawn" in the context meant here is spelt P-A-W-N. I suggest you edit the title so that it ceases to be rather unfortunate.

DI, glad you figured it out. I was quite stumped, or was it stupified?

I get resumes with the same sort of error. Unbelievable! The limitations of spell check appear to be an unknown to a significent portion of society.

It's not entirely untrue. Marie-Antoinette was rumored to have had affairs with other men and abusing her son.

to correct the error , a mod will have to do it !

However a thousand pornographic pamphlets were published about
MA telling of how she was a nymphomaniac, lesbian etc you name it.....
so maybe my typing porn by mistake was n't so far from the mark !

Marrying off your 14 year old daughter for political reasons, porn seems very apt.

"Rumoured"..........exactly. I don't think there's any proof of her having had affairs. Oh, and she certainly didn't abuse her son - that allegation was dreamed up for her "trial" and even the spectators at it were disgusted that such a thing could be suggested. Those lovely Revolutionaries were the only perpetrators of abuse on the poor little Dauphin.

Never heard of propaganda?? I think those horrid revolutionary-type people were the masters of it. Afterall, look at the reputation Marie Antoinette has today.....

Marie-Antoinette was no angel herself. When the people starved because there was no bread she told them to eat cake.

Rumor with no authenticated eye witness that I know of, just something Rousseau cooked up.
