Discover the life of Marie-Antoinette as you read, draw and play
A jewel of a book lets you discover the childhood of Marie-Antoinette, her life as the Dauphine and the entertainment of a Queen…
Marie-Antoinette is a little princess who loves to dance and play like any other child.
At thirteen she must leave her family, her friends and her country to marry the Dauphin, the future King of France.
A new life begins in Versailles where the tiresome “Madame Etiquette” makes sure she follows all the rules.
Marie-Antoinette is very stylish.
She sets the fashion with extravagant headdresses and sumptuous gowns...
As a Queen, she favours a more private life, surrounded by her children and close to nature.
