but was the princesse of Lamballe friend of Philippe d'Orléans??
The duchesse of Polignac and the Queen didn't..
i think that the duc d'Orléans voted death to the King, during the revolution.

Princess de Lamballe and Philippe d'Orléans were relatives, that's why. They also were both well known and important freemasons. When she came to the tuileries, Madame de Lamballe had problems because of it, she had to choose her side, you see. She chose her queen, of course !

Yes, this scoundrel voted death or his cousin ! They say poor Louis XVI was upset having heard this awful news.

Do you know proprieties and châteaux where Yolande passed her time? Or did she only lived in Versailles?

Dear Polignac, thanks for this wonderful engraving ! Finally something made in honour of our duchess ! I didn't expect such things to even exist...

I know she had a property in Bray or something. The queen went there, and even stayed without her suite. The king too came and visited his friend Gabrielle. They say it's the only private house Louis XVI got in.

The duchesse de Polignac third son, Jules, created prince in 1820, wasn't the older male son of the duchesse. Yolande had Armand, how was older than Jules...Before being created prince by the pope, Jules had any title?...his oldest brother was the 2nd duc de Polignac.

The Duchesse de  Polignac died in Vienna in December, 1793.  Does anyone know where she is buried?

No idea, dear Frohsdorf... her epitaph says "died from sorrow", it's all I know. I didn't even go to Vienna yet, I'd like to, so much ! Surely I'll try to find Gabrielle's tumb, then...

i'm also going to search about it, because it's very interesting...but i think that her body could only be sent to france after napolean's empire, during the restauration of Louis XVIII...

Madame du Barry, the mistress of the death king Louis XV, was hated by Marie Antoinette and by most of her aristocratic friends...And by Madame du Polignac, was du Barry hated by Yolande?

Yolande wasn't, as du Barry, very religious, and she had expensives tastes...Both of the two aristocratic ladys have many things that are the same; they liked money, they liked luxury, and they liked "dangerous love"..
But, at the other way, Yolande, being a favorite of the Queen Marie Antoinette (with Lamballe), couldn't have a very friendly relationship with du Barry...Marie Antoinette wouldn't like it...

That's the point, dear Polignac ! Many people wonder why Marie-Antoinette accused Barry of things she perfectly beared in Gabrielle's demaneor. Seems our queen had morals concerns in some cases, and not in others !  ;D

No doubt Marie-Antoinette didn't like Barry for others reasons, and morals was but a pretext.

Did Gabrielle like Barry ? When Antoinette had problems with the favorite, Gabrielle was not her best friend yet. Lamballe was. Surely she followed her queen...

Later, Marie-Antoinette got better along with Barry, and Barry even tried to help royals during the revolution.

I think that the only Yolande's lover knowned is Vaudreuil...Altough, I thought that it would be interesting knowing more lovers of the duchesse Yolande Gabrielle de Polignac.
