I've seen the castle of King Louis IV in Versailles before and I still can't get over the feeling up to this day.
It is grand, wealthy, ostentatious, decadent and magnificent.
Marie-Antoinette was lucky to have hooked up with a fashionable and wealthy king of France.
They were both very young. Marie-Antoinette was a teenager when she married the King.
So imagine the power that was bequeathed you.
It completely consumed the Queen that she got out of touch with the real world....so off with their heads.
They were the last royalty who lost their heads in the heart of Paris.
At first, I rationalized the Queen's shortcomings and weaknesses.
But the moment I visited her Trianon and Hamlet,
I saw the light. She was a queen who staged her passion for being a peasant. How?
She had a dreamy estate built to satisfy her caprice.
