Count Von Fersen

The calumnies arrayed against Marie-Antoinette have never gone away. Marie-Antoinette, better known on this blog as La Reine-Martyre, continues to be attacked by people who in my humble opinion are "projecting" their insecurities and failings upon her. Elena-Maria has noted this in the latest installment of her blog...

Now seriously people read some books about Marie-Antoinette! Movies are never primary source material...

This primary source is by some one who knew her intimately, Madame Campan, it is on the web free, and may be found here...

Thanks Elena-Maria defender of the Queen.

Dieu le Roy,

Well said. Thanks to you and Elena-Maria. There really is nothing like calumny, is there? It's so hard to restore someone's name when they have been unjustly accused, especially when slanders have been ingrained into people's minds by incessant repetition. It's incredible, the way such good people can arouse so much hatred and calumny, even centuries later.The recent movie about Marie-Antoinette was a disgrace!

So right. And it works the other way as well, people who should have been domonized are not. Take Napoleon for example...

What an orge!
