Marie Antoinette gets some advice from her mom, this time it is about playing her part!
“Too much compliance is degrading; you must play your own part, if you wish to be valued. If you do not, I foresee great trouble before you; nothing but mischief-making and plots, which will make your life unhappy. Believe the advice of a mother, who knows the world and idolizes her children, and desires only to pass her sad days in being useful to them.”
Maria Theresa, 13 October 1777
