A Beautiful account of the French Court by the companion of Marie Antoinette herself. Full of detailed illustrations. Reviews Madame Campan's Memoirs form a vital part of any collection on the French Revolution. Although Campan's memoirs are judged by many historians to be an attempt to ingratiate herself with the Bourbon regime during the Restoration, the details afforded by the former femme-de-chambre of queen Marie-Antoinette are second to none. Life at Versailles is brought to life, the gossip, the rigors of etiquette, the shortcomings and strengths of Louis XVI and his queen are all described - magnificently! This book is a valuable resource for scholars and students as well as the casual reader.
