Worshipped or detested, Marie-Antoinette continues to fascinate. The only queen who really reigned in Versailles, she was familiar with all the constraints of Court life, its boredom, luxury, pleasures and scandals, up to the first stirrings of the Revolution.


From her arrival in the Palace as wife of the royal heir in May 1770, to her forced departure in October 1789, the queen shaped Versailles in her image. Sensitive to fashion and the expressions of the pre-Romantic movement, as well as being extremely extravagant, she invented an art of fine living that was both intimate and sumptuous, drawing on the work of the greatest artists of her time.


From the State Apartments to the inner private apartments of the Palace, from the Petit Trianon to the Hamlet, the historian Cécile Berly takes us in the footsteps of Marie-Antoinette and describes the places and the history of the last queen of France in Versailles.
