Synopsis

Marie-Antoinette A Historical Tale by Catherine de Duve, Thierry Bosquet

This book helps you learn about the life of Marie-Antoinette, the young Austrian princess who grew to become the notorious, but very stylish Queen of France. It includes a free mask. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 14 years of age. Marie-Antoinette is a little princess who loves to dance and play like any other child. At thirteen she must leave her family, her friends and her country to marry the Dauphin, the future King of France. A new life begins in Versailles where the tiresome Madame Etiquette makes sure she follows all the rules. Marie-Antoinette is very stylish. She sets the fashion with extravagant headdresses and sumptuous gowns. As a Queen, she favours a more private life, surrounded by her children and close to nature. This is a jewel of a book which lets you discover the childhood of Marie-Antoinette, her life as the Dauphine, her lavish lifestyle and the entertainment of a queen.
