Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette, the most beautiful flower of the Hapsburg family was cruelly abused by her Republican jailers before she surmounted the platform to the jeering of a multitude with wavering steps, slightly trembling, as Hillaire Belloc describes her for posterity. Her once beautiful auburn hair disheveled and matted, yet she walked with the pitable dignity of a woman who'd been cruelly beaten but was not defeated. The Republican organs of propaganda had whipped the crowd into a frenzy of hate for this woman and she was condemned to die without proof, stripped of her children who'd later be murdered and preceeded in death by her beloved husband, the King.

The youthful courage of this gentle and sweet woman will be remembered in eternity and her noble death will be remembered long after the lies told about her have receeded like a bad dream.
