There is a wonderful book about Marie Antoinette that I would like to recommend. I don't usually read historical fiction, but this one is very accurate and the author's prose is simply gorgeous, and quite literally, breath-taking at some points. It is called, "Abundance" by Sena Jeter Naslund. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Marie Antoinette.

The biography of Louis XVI by Jean-Christian Petitfils is very well documented but I don't know if this book is published in English.

What 3 books did Jean write on Catherine? I always thought she wrote English fiction, but after reading her English books I would like to read what she has to say on Catherine. Has anyone read The Confessions of Catherine de Medici.

The Maid and the Queen by Nancy Goldstone

I really enjoyed this book - it restores Joan of Arc's patron, Queen Yolande of Sicily, Countess of Provence and the Duchess of Anjou to her rightful place in French history.

It's a manga but it features King Louis XV at Versailles and Queen Marie and the duc d' Orleans and it's become an anime as well, has anyone heard of "le chevalier d'eon" ?

Now this should be an interesting read; I'll have to see if the library carries it.

Queen of Navarre, Jeanne d'Albret: 1528-1572 by Nancy Lyman Roelker is an excellent biography of the arch nemesis of Catherine de Médicis.

I have seen two videos on forums, of the weddings recently of two pretenders to the throne of France. One married in Portugal and the other in South America, and each have produced heirs now. What intrigued me most was the beautiful hymn sung in the background on each video. Was this the anthem of royalist France? Was it the anthem used before the Revolution? It's very impressive and I would like to identify it.
