Spend Bastille Day and Pink Saturday with Marie and Louis

 Louis XVI  wearing his working clothes he liked to do blacksmith work and repair clocks and hunt

 Young Marie Antoinette
 Queen Marie Antoinette

 Her sad state on her way to the guillotine
 A bit earlier in time -Madame de Pompadour I couldn't resist her so lovely
 The Countess du Barry despised by Marie Antoinette and the king's daughters
 Princess de Lamballe her dear friend was Marie Antoinette
She lost her head as well.

Happy Pink Saturday and Bastille Day
join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound :
I always feel a bit sad on Bastlle Day for all the lives that were lost in the French Revolution
Marie Antoinette was only 38 when she was beheaded
The figurines shown above are the work of George Stuart an historian and lecturer and artist.
He creates these figures to use as visuals for his historical lectures.
Mr. Stuart does many figures from many areas of history from United States and other nations.His web site is below.
