Mdmroyale, if you're talking about this discussion
on my forum, I can assure you that my friend Gareth is not "against" Marie Antoinette. He is merely arguing that as a young woman she was not particularly pious, which seems to me to be true. I like Elena Maria Vidal's Trianon
too, but it is not infallible.
Certainly Marie Antoinette faced her downfall, imprisonment and death with heroic faith and virtue, and I hope that she is canonized someday. But I also think that if one accepts that there was perhaps a bit more to the young Marie Antoinette than the thoroughly saintly picture painted by Vidal, the real woman that emerges is more fascinating and likable than if she were perfect.
It's also worth noting that Trianon
begins its narrative in 1787, after the relatively "frivolous" period of the queen's life was over.
