She was not one of my favorites. Didn't she have an affair with Louis VI? I read that in Susan Nagels's book about Marie-Therese. Though,another book I read about Marie Antoinette, said nothing about the subject.

I am thinking , loyalty was not so huge back in the 1700s

How bad is bad? (Not that I want to know....)

And her hat looks quite nice with his outfit.

Ya know, next to each other they're kind of a cute couple!

Aren't they? They were an official item, in fact she could not resist him. He was quite charismatic, dare I say, a ladies man??

Vickie, Nagel only supposes Louis XVI was Polignac's lover at one point. Apparently a chambermaid was also enjoyed his charms. No scholars (reputable or otherwise)have ever made such ludicrous suggestions and I don't think Nagel names any new source(s) for this guesswork.

Seems like he was quite the ladies man! Scandelous!
