Royal Diaries Blog Takeover #2

We at Dead Queens love having these two fabulous sisters, Julia and Felicia of Royal Diaries Podcast fame take over our Queenspiratons Blog!
Here they are again!
Enjoy Queens. 
It's time for blog takeover deuxième partie from the Royal Diaries Podcast!
As you've probably guessed from our terrible French, we’re tackling one of our problematic faves - Marie Antoinette.
Marie Antoinette was the last Queen of France before the French Revolution. In April 1770, upon her marriage to Louis-Auguste, she became the Dauphine of France before ascending to the throne at age 19. Despite her initial popularity, a growing number of the population eventually came to dislike her and blame the country’s ruin on her profligate spending. On September 21, 1792, the monarchy was abolished. On October 16, 1793, after a two-day trial, Marie Antionette was convicted of high treason and executed by guillotine at the Palace de la Revolution.
A true Scorpio, LARP-ing walking disaster but villain or victim is a too simplified approach for this icon.
In our episode “Marie Antoinette: Princess of Versailles” we put her controversies in context and how her influence was part of what created the idea of quintessentially French things.
Also, the fabulous Dead Queens design for Marie Antionnette features the famous redo of a painting of her.
Why was the picture a redo? You'll have to listen to find out!
Check out our “Marie Antoinette: Princess of Versailles” episode to learn more!
For more Marie Antoinette content, our blog is here for you too!

The last Queen of France
Loved to play games of chance
But the people went bust
And Marie lost their trust
And mon dieu, her head did a dance
