Details from paintings - Marie-Antoinette dresses
Marie-Antoinette (1755 – 1793), born an Archduchess of Austria, was Dauphine of France from 1770 to 1774 and Queen of France and Navarre from 1774 to 1792. Initially charmed by her personality and beauty, the French people generally came to dislike her, accusing her of being profligate, promiscuous, and of harboring sympathies for France’s enemies. Marie Antoinette earned the nickname of “Madame Déficit” in the summer of 1787 as a result of the public perception that she had singlehandedly ruined the finances of the nation. Eight months after her husband’s execution, Marie Antoinette was herself tried, convicted by the Convention for treason to the principles of the revolution, and executed by guillotine.
