Marie Antoinette

I want to talk a little about Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France and wife of Louis XVI. This woman was amazing, and lived a life fit for royalty. Yet she did many silly things too. Looking at her life we can find many examples of things we should not do, such as eating a lot of pastry. Of course, she was French, and lived at a time when people had almost no nutritional information. They were mere barbarians. But she should have avoided that pastry. Of all the royal personages I have encountered in my studies of ancient history, and I have studied it exhaustively, I must say there is only one I ever really fell in love with, and that was her. The reason is because she was an iconoclast. She looked good on skates. And she had a winning smile. Ah, if only they hadn't sent her to the guillotine! Ah, cruel fate! Where are you today, my sweet Queen of France!
