Actually, they were going to Montmédy, a place-forte (a military place) near austrian border. Varennes was just on their way, and they were stopped there under these awful circumstances we know...


  It is true!
Too bad they did not take Fersen with them! He waws a man of action I bet he would have figured out something! I mean I do not see the reason why they were taking two maids in a primordial flight, I guess they did not realize the fulll importance of it on their lives and throne!!! I read that MA send a necessaire to her sister Marie Christine, she sent a full trousseau for her and Mouseline!!!! some people were already suspicious! I mean if you are in a flight who cares about looks comodities, they should have went seperately one coach behind the other maybe, light small coaches, with some money and that`s it!!!!
  I think that if they had escaped the revolution would not have last so much.

The movie La Nuit De Varennes made in 1983, is a french revolution period piece set in June 1791 is about a group of passengers in a stagecoach, who are two hours behind the royal family as they flee Paris,in the coach are Thomas Paine, Retif de la Bretonne the historian, a aging Casanova, a young Jacobin,  a lady in waiting, a middle class woman, a industrialist, a devoted  royalist who has the Kings royal robes, ect.  During the coach journey the passengers get to know each other and discuss the revolution in general with a particular point of view. It is well done with very authentic detail in costumes and accoutrements.It stars Jean- Louis Barrault, Marcello Mastroianni. Harvey Keitel, Hanna Schy,only available on VHS video, hope you can track down a copy from your video shop

I've read that he only noted in his diary what he had achieved while hunting - so "Rien" just meant he hadn't been hunting. I can't read the writing for the days when he did have something to report - does it relate to hunting, Sissi?

The man bowing before Louis at the coronation - could it be the elder Duc d'Orléans (b. 1725) rather than Orléans "Égalité" (b. 1747)?
