The Barnes & Noble Review: Was she a sexual predator, political meddler, wastrel, and traitor. Or was she a scapegoat for a corrupt and bankrupt nation, who went with superb dignity to the guillotine, the victim of a vindictive judicial murder. The tragic life of Marie Antoinette, rich in conflicting detail, remains a biographer's challenge, and Antonia Fraser's richly human yet evenhanded 4/5(45).

A WELL-ROUNDED BIOGRAPHY OF A COMPLICATED WOMAN 👏 Popsugar Reading Challenge Two books that share the same title This review is, of course, going to be a little coloured by the fact that I have just read another biography of Madame de Pompadour by Nancy Mitford, which I wasn't the biggest fan far as biographies go, I have read better than this one, it had some flaws/5(35).

There she met some of the French courtiers, such as the Count and Countess de Noailles, who Maria Antonia would later nickname “Madame Etiquette”, due to her rigid adherence to court etiquette. On an island near Kehl in a hastily constructed wooden building, Maria Antonia became Marie Antoinette, Dauphine of France.
