Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    (September 8, 1749-September 3, 1792)
    Born in Turin (Plazzo Carignano), Italy
    Married to Prince Louis Alexandre of Lamballe for one year, from 1767 to 1768
    Appointed Superintendent to the Royal Family by Queen Marie Antoinette
    Decapitated in the September Massacres of 1792 during the French Revolution
    She was described by her contemporaries as beautiful, but naïve and witless.
    She had an extravagant wedding party that lasted ten days in two different locations (Turin and Nangis).
    She briefly fell out of favor with Marie Antoinette and was replaced by the Duchess Yolande of Polignac.
    She was advised to remain in Great Britain when the French Revolution began to heat up, but she returned to France anyway, where she was condemned to death.
    Her severed head was stuck onto a pike and displayed within full view of Marie Antoinette’s prison window, royally scaring the hell out of the Queen.
    It was rumored the two had a lesbian affair in the court, and as such the Queen was dared to kiss the Princess’ head.
    She was widowed at nineteen.
    She was known for being kind, gentle, and sweet tempered.
    She held her own with the revolutionaries at her trial and was sentenced to death for her refusal to condemn the Royal Family.
    Her death is remembered as one of the most barbaric and undeserved deaths during the Reign of Terror.
    Witnesses testify to seeing her genitals and breasts mutilated before she was hacked to death (some claim that they were also stuck to pikes and paraded in the streets).
    She has the honor of being one of Madame Tussaud’s first wax models (she was forced to craft the Princess’ death mask).
    She was Marie Antoinette’s one true confidante at Versailles.
    She is the embodiment of a friend loyal to the death.
    Sophia Coppola downplays her importance in the ‘Marie Antoinette’ movie.
