Rate this:
Drawing on diaries, letters, court records, and memoirs, Evelyn Lever paints vivid portraits of Marie Antoinette, her inner circle, and the lavish court life at Versailles. Married off for political reasons at the age of fourteen, Marie Antoinette was naive, impetuous, and unprepared for the role history cast her in. Evelyn Lever weaves the tragic tale of the Queen's life, from her birth in Vienna in 1755 through her turbulent, unhappy marriage, the bloody turmoil of the French Revolution, her trial for high treason (during which she was accused of incest), and her final beheading. The result is an unforgettable tapestry of life in eighteenth-century France.
