The queen pays her bills

There is just so much about the Reine Martyr that is just untrue. Far from the spendthrift that she is portrayed in books, Marie-Antoinette payed her bills as did everyone else. Indeed at the end she had already sold the silver as it were to pay the servants. While much has been made the infamous "affair of the necklace", Marie-Antoinette believed her children were her true pearls.
