Marie Antoinette

A picture from the movie, which was made in 2006.

Marie Antoinette was the princess of Austria, daughter to Francis I and Maria Theresa. She was forced into an arranged marriage to Louis XVI, and became queen of France when she was only 14. Marie was very into fashion, and often had very expensive, elaborate hairstyles done for her. She wasn’t very popular with the people, because she didn’t seem to care about the commoners and only spent time on herself. Despite being good-looking, Louis never seemed to be that into her, but they eventually produced four children. Her, Louis, and their children were arrested when the revolution started. Eventually she was executed at the age of 37, on October 16th, 1793.
