was barely 14 years old when she left Austria and her mother empress Maria Theresa to marry the Dauphin in France. She is still a stubborn and dissipated young child who must comply with French rules, which are numerous and complicated. The young princess quickly suffers from not being able to live her life as she sees fit. She is constantly under pressure to carry on the Bourbon line. A mission more complicated than expected: even if the relationship between Marie Antoinette
XVI improves over time, it will take them seven years to consummate
their marriage. From the young runner-up to the queen of style, a true
fashion icon, Marie Antoinette quickly impresses with her charisma and
naturalness. She will gradually understand the codes and secrets of the
court and completely recreate Versailles in her image! But her
success stirs up jealousy and rivalry. Defamatory pamphlets and
persistent rumors about her private life undermine her reputation. It
will take a lot of courage and dignity to defeat her numerous enemies at
the Versailles court. Read more here.
