Marie-Antoinette, the last queen of France, fascinated her contemporaries with her temperament and independent spirit, her escapades and frivolity. Born the fifteenth child of Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa, she married the future Louis XVI at age 15, and charmed the entire French court with her small blonde build and grace. Crowned queen in 1774, she quickly stepped forward and upstaged her kind. A great lover and rebel, she lost herself in gambling and social activity, angering her subjects, who would never forgive her excesses. From her powder pink boudoirs and her apartments filled with lacquered furniture, to the Trianon where she brought her lovers, to her milk house where she played farmer's wife, this book traces the journey of the woman who left her mark on her time with a feminism that was both flirtatious and glamorous.
