France's beleaguered queen, Marie Antoinette, wrongly accused of uttering the infamous "Let them eat cake," was the subject of ridicule and curiosity even before her death; she has since been the object of debate and speculation and the fascination so often accorded tragic figures in history. Married in mere girlhood, this essentially lighthearted, privileged, but otherwise unremarkable child was thrust into an unparalleled time and place, and was commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in history. Antonia Fraser's lavish and engaging portrait of Marie Antoinette, one of the most recognizable women in European history, excites compassion and regard for all aspects of her subject, immersing the listener not only in the coming-of-age of a graceful woman, but also in the unraveling of an era.… (mere)

Maria Antonieta é uma figura mítica. Julgada severamente por seus contemporâneos e pela história, vista por todos como uma rainha celerada, e depois um bode expiatório, ela sempre foi unanimemente admirada por sua inabalável coragem perante os grandes cataclismos de seu tempo. Coroada rainha da França em plena saída da adolescência, ela foi incumbida por sua mãe, a poderosa imperatriz Maria Teresa, da tarefa de proteger os interesses de seu país natal, a Áustria. Por toda a vida, exerceu um papel político ambíguo, atraindo a desconfiança e o ódio do povo francês. Neste livro, Antonia Fraser retraça a jornada inicial da rainha. Ela examina detalhadamente a personalidade e os percursos de Maria Antonieta - a infância, as influências dos laços familiares, as relações conjugais marcadas por um casamento não-consumado por um longo tempo, a vinda tão esperada dos filhos, o idílio com o conde Hans Alex von Fersen, seus contatos com as grandes figuras da Revolução, e, enfim, seus esforços heróicos para salvar a família e a monarquia da violência revolucionária.

This was a fantastic read in my opinion. Antonia Fraser does an incredible job in telling Marie Antoinette’s story in a captivating way for any reader. Myself personally, I had this unclear image of Marie Antoinette, but after reading this book, I was able to get a more definitive image of a woman who’s been so elusive in history due to modern — and historical — exaggerations about the woman.

I've never cried so much reading a book. There are so many misconceptions about Marie Antoinette's life that I want to smack myself in the back of the head for having ever believed, I feel so much pity for this woman and admire her so much. Louis XVI was unsuited for his generation. If his lovely personality was brought into the 21st century, I feel as if he would have been much more appreciated. My heart goes out to their whole family. I'm trying hard to type through the tears. ( )

I put this book on my reading list at the time when I saw Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette film but that's a long enough time ago that I can't really remember much about it—the scene where young Antoine has to symbolically leave Austria behind, all the way down everything she's wearing. Beyond that, when I finally picked up this book, I had this idea of sensationalist parties and extravagance, but this biography puts a lot of effort into showing the life and and the woman behind the sensationalist pamphlets and the gory end, one who got swept into a period of violent change because of what she was seen to represent rather than anything specific that she did.
A thoughtful book that I enjoyed reading. ( )

3.5. I liked this book fairly well and thought it was quite sympathetic to Marie-Antoinette. ( )
