The Rise Of Marie Antoinette - Part One | Royal Summer Series | Episode 131


We speak about adult themes and baby loss during this episode. 

Baby loss is mentioned during the timestamp of 46:30 - 47:55. Please skip this part if you need to. 


Welcome to our first of four special Summer series episodes. 

Today we are taking a departure from talking about the British Royal Family and turning the tables to the 18th Century French Queen, Marie Antoinette.


Rachael has been busy researching the rise of Marie Antoinette and in today's episode we answer the questions:


What age was Marie Antoinette when she got married?

Why did Marie Antoinette marry Louis XV?

What was the Royal Court of Versailles really like?

How long did it take to produce an heir to the French throne?


Grab a cuppa and enjoy.
