Marie-Antoinette's favourites

Queen of France at 18 years old, it took Marie-Antoinette only a few years to become the country's most hated person, before being executed at the age of 38 after a sham trial. In her fall she also brought down the intimate circle she had created around her at Versailles.

With Évelyne Lever, historian; Cécile Berly, historian; Patricia Bouchenot-Déchin, historian; Jean-Christian Petitfils, historian; Emmanuel de Valicourt, historian; Philippe Séguy, writer; Hélène Delalex, heritage conservation officer at the Château de Versailles; Charles-Éloi Vial, curator at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.

Presented by: Stéphane Bern.
