Marie Antoinette's B-Day

Lauren has informed her readers on http://Marie Antoinette's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century , that it is Marie Antoinette's birthday today. Which is more of a somber moment for me. I just keep thinking of those last few years of her life. The way she and her children were treated. Basically, the new french government committed murder with the royal executions and the torture and neglect of Louis XVII, the young boy king. In her early life, Versailles was such a catty place. It wasn't always such a wonderful place to be living. I believe her real joy was her children and her few friends, yet I don't know about that Duchess of Polignac.
