  2. 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

    And her hat looks quite nice with his outfit.

  5. 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??

  6. 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.
