About Marie Antoinette


"[She] made jokes about those in whom she perceived anything ridiculous, without any ill intention, and purely through lightness of heart."
Comte de Mercy


I love this quote, pulled from Marie-Antoinette, Her Early Youth (1770-1774). The Comte followed up his assessement by finding that she made her jokes with a distinct cleverness rendering her witty and the comments piquant!
