This is the biography of one of the most tragic women in History. It is the story of a frivolous young girl who threw wild parties and spent a lot of her husband's money and for that reason, and that reason alone, she had her head chopped off in public. The back cover photo here shows Marie Antoinette being given her last rights by a clergyman as she was waiting before the guillotine for the executioners to cut off her head, and while a crowd of thousands watched. Her last words were one of apology to one of her executioners, when she accidentally stepped on his foot. All of the events of the Life of Marie Antoinette are brilliantly explained in this biography by Andre Castelot. The most haunting and harrowing pages of the biography are Castelot's darkly etched picture of the Queen in the culminating moments of her life. Perhaps it is not in the least a paradox that one of the most arrantly self-indulgent women should, in her adversity, provide one of the most memorable images of mother love."… (més)

When I started reading this biography of the famous French queen, I wanted to largely dismiss it in favor of some of the more recent, well-researched books on her life. Yet, as I read, I began to appreciated the author's extensive quotes and attempts to provide a sense of what it was like to live during the French Revolution. Details and narratives appear here that I hadn't encountered elsewhere and while this book may not be the best one I've read about Marie Antoinette, it certainly serves a purpose in bringing her story to life.

A good serious biography. A slow read. Very detailed. ( )

מתחיל נחמד אך מאכז בסופו של דבר. דגש מוגזם על קורותיה של מרי אנטואנט ומעט מדי על הרקע. נפוליאון של אותו מחבר היה עדיף עקב הקשר האמיץ יותר בין חיי נפוליאון והעשייה המדינית הצבאית.
נכתב מתוך אהבה רבה למלוכה ולמרי אנטאנט בפרט. ( )
