I know a lot about the history of France, especially the periods from Louis XIV to Louis XVI, but when people ask me to teach them about the French Revolution I don’t know how to tell them I can’t, because I’m a monarchist and people don’t want to hear my version because they deem it “incorrect”.
I wish I could have been Alexandre Dumas’ muse. His stories are filled with beautiful, scandalous, and sometimes treacherous women, and I fancy that I could have been one.
I want to go back in time and steal Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe, including her shoes.
I think Arthur Rimbaud with his stunning beauty and brilliant poems was the one who made me gay.
Gilles de Rais is my favorite serial killer. Yeah, he raped and murdered hundreds of children, but he was also besties with everyone’s favorite martyr, Joan of Arc. Talk about complex.
I find Marie Antoinette unspeakably boring. She never deserved the vitriol directed at her, but I cannot understand why people now find her so fascinating, either.
I feel bad for Marie Antoinette. There, I said it.
I think France would have avoided the July Revolution if the duc and duchesse d’Angoulême had ruled after Louis XVIII, instead of Charles X.
Napoleon Bonaparte may have killed many people, but he was an utter genius.
I really wanted to hug Louis XVI and say that he did his best
