Marie Antoinette for Pink Saturday

Marie Antoinette
is a figure who has intrigued, provoked and captivated not only those of us now learning her story through film, literature and biography, but her own contemporaries.





" I was a queen, and you took away my crown;
a wife, and you killed my husband;
a mother, and you deprived me of my children.
My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long."





Throne room Versailles

All I could see was...the cakes. Everyone is posting yummy cakes these days, making my sweet tooth come alive. I swear, I think I could eat a whole one by myself. Yummy post, Gina.

I know I should be focusing on her history and the sufferings she must have faced (based on your quote) but letting me see a picture of her feet being massaged and surrounded by all those pink cakes? I surely would get distracted.
