In this dual biography of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette the author assesses the lives of two of history's most consistently misrepresented figures. He emphasizes the King's role as a hard-working reformer and the Queen's important influence on the arts. Together they struggled against impossible odds, and their story unfolds against the backdrop of a glittering court, intrigue, passion and revolutionary upheaval. The author has also written "The Flowering of the Renaissance", "The Companion Guide to Paris" and "The Golden Honeycomb".
