Queen Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI’s wife, was never fully accepted by the French. Yet since her death, and mostly since the 19th century, she has received many signs of honor, bordering on the cult given to a martyr. With Marie Antoinette’s World: Intrigue, Infidelity, and Adultery in Versailles, Will Bashor dares debunk all the romantic views of the queen, thanks to his scholarly knowledge and research.

In Marie Antoinette’s Darkest Days, Bashor’s aim is to document Marie-Antoinette’s last days of imprisonment in the fairest way, helping readers find sense between numerous conflicting accounts, without taking part. He does it brilliantly and I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as much as I did the previous one by the author, on Marie-Antoinette and her hairdresser.
