Young Marie first showed a talent for life-modelling as a teenager in Paris. Sent to live in the royal household, he started sculpting famous figures, including Louis XVI himself. When the Revolution struck, Marie was torn. She understood why the poor had risen up in protest, but she couldn't forget the kindnesses of the King. Should she stick with the royalists, or go over to the rebels' side? The French Revolution, as it turned out, was only the start of Marie's adventures. This is the amazing story of the woman who founded London's celebrated waxwork museum, "Madame Tussaud's".
