« When Mme de Polignac died in Vienna in 1793, he (vaudreuil) shed many a crocodile tear»

i think that the comte vaudreuil was only taking advantage with yolande's affair..i don't know if he loved her, but i don't think so.
it is also said and believed by some people that yolande's second son, Armand Jules, 2nd duc de Polignac, was Vaudreuil son, and not from count or the 1st duc de Polignac, Jules, Yolande's husband..

Yolande must had great propriety and money too..but, at this time, is it dificult to estimate her fortune?...there's so few resources about the duchesse..

and i understand that some people can think that she wouldn't run away, and leave marie antoinette..but, if you were Yolande, would you stay in versailles, knowing that you were hated by all the people?..
and i've read that louis xvi order to yolande to leave the country, for her own good...
i would make the same think...i would leave to the exile

in wikipedia they say: «...Yolande's beautiful younger sister, Louise, became the life-long mistress of Louis XVI's youngest brother, Charles, Comte d'Artois (later Charles X)...»

but one thing is strange..i've read too that Yolande run away from france in july, but in http://www.authorama.com/memoirs-of-marie-antoinette-b-1.html it's saying that Yolande was present when the people of paris went to versailles, and obligate marie antoinette to come to the balcony...and it was in october... ???...

«The Great Fear

The storming of the Bastille greatly disturbed a number of nobles who knew the poverty of the common people and feared vengeance if royal power was inadequate to check mob impulses. Leading members of the royal court, including close friends of Marie Antoinette fled the country. These included in July and August the Count of Artois and MADAME POLIGNAC and in October her close friend and portraitist Vigee Lebrun.»

[This lively repartee of the Duchesse de Polignac is a droll imitation of a line in the “Mercure Galant.”  In the quarrel scene one of the lawyers says to his brother quill: ’Ton pere etait aveugle et jouait du hautbois.’]

so..Yolande had a brother?..i know that she had a sister, Louise, how was the mistress of the count d'Artois...i thought that the family was only Yolande and Louise...did they had more brothers??  :-/ :-/

i don't know nothing about that rumour..but it's not a stupid rumour...the french would like to poison Yolande de Polignac...but, by the other way, i think that at this time, France had other prioraties, like combating the austro-prussian army that was in the north of France, and killing every single resistance to the new governemnt...
