Videl....The same reasoning can be applied to any circumstance, Nicholas & Alexandra did, etc etc...  In theory the entire Western world dances while 'the people starve', but does that mean we should face execution?



Davidov.... I hope you realize I was being sarcastic.

I agree, coquelicot. The queen who danced while the people starved...she deserved what she got, etc, etc. :'(

Thank you, coquelicot! I agree that we cannot compare the relationship of Nicholas and Alexandra with Louis and Antoinette, two VERY different relationships indeed!

Haha, we'd better leave you in peace, we want more of your work!  ;D


Thank you for the kind words but I had better just turn off the computer! Oh no, my book is on the computer! What a dilemma!

The Stuarts of Scotland / Re: Stuart descent of Louis XVI

 Minette and her difficult marriage - it certainly bore fruit! And Elizabeth out there in Heidelburg - the mother of many kings. Fascinating!

I had no idea so many of the Bourbons were descended from the Stuarts - mostly from Minette or the Winter Queen, it seems. Intriguing how things work out....

Hello, elena-maria-vidal ! Michèle Lorin is a very nice person, passionated with Marie-Antoinette since many many years. She's also a well known collector and has many information about the queen. You can contact her by surfing on their site : http://www.marie-antoinette-association.com/. Their aim is to let people know Marie-Antoinette better and truer, as well as her rehabilitation, of course ! In this view, they organize events. I already attented a colloque at Versailles, it was fascinating ! We even could smell Antoinette's perfume... a real dream...


Coquelicot, do you know if I may write to them in English? My French is a bit rusty.

    To tell the truth about M.A. -  Hollywood  would have to make a serious  movie like Nicholas and Alexandra, perhaps call it Louis and Marie, have it set between 1789 and 1793 with flashbacks to their early life together - 1774 to 1789.   ;)


I like the idea of the flashbacks! ;) ;) ;)

Great idea!  ;) They could have done a movie based on Cronin's "Louis and Antoinette" which was sort of the equivalent to Massie's "Nicholas and Alexandra."

Did it ever occur to you that this type of behavior may have nothing to do with their parents' divorce per say, but perhaps more with their parents' marriage itself?

Things are never what they seem in these types of situations and sometimes answers lie in things completely different than what would be expected ;).


Ah, yes, it did occur to me, which is why I am interested in Mary's childhood and how Henry and Cathrine got along. Never mind, I'll just find a good book.

I heard they may have been having an argument when dear Grace had the stroke which is another reason why Stephanie felt so guilty. People in their forties and fifties are known to have strokes.

BTW, I just checked, and Elizabeth reigned for 44 (almost 45) years. She ascended the throne in 1558 at the age of 25, and died in 1603, at almost 70.


OK, Helen, sorry. It was 44 years, not forty.
