Marie Antoinette - Signed by Author Antonia Fraser

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Still a controversial figure as well as a celebrated one. Marie Antoinette's dramatic life-story continues to arouse mixed emotions. To many people, she was the woman whose extravagance and frivolity helped to bring down the French monarchy; her indifference to popular suffering epitomised by the (apocryphal) words: let them eat cake. She was accused of personal profligacies and sexual excesses. Others are equally passionate in her defence: to them, she is a victim of misogyny. Marie Antoinette remains one of the genuinely romantic and ill-treated characters in history. Hardback. 488 pages. Illustrated with colour photos. Signed by the author. Previous owner's name on front endpaper. See photos. First edition 2001.
