To tell the story of Marie Antoinette is to relive the great revolution. To assail the Monarchy, the revolution had to attack the Queen, and in the Queen, the woman. Thus Marie Antoinette, of inviolate virtue, kind heart and heroic character was sacrificed by the hordes in their discrimination to overthrow the Monarchy and send its Queen to the guillotine, under the stigma of a prostitute and guilty of every form of moral corruption and perversion.
