French Queen Marie Antoinette Riding a HorseDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: French Queen Marie Antoinette Riding a Horse

Description: A painting depicting French Queen Marie Antoinette (November 2, 1755-October 16, 1793) her riding a horse at the age of twenty-eight with her dogs beside them; the painting was by Swiss artist Louis-Auguste Brun (October 3, 1758-October 9, 1815); she was the eleventh daughter of the Holy Roman emperor Francis I (December 8, 1708-August 18, 1765) and empress Maria Theresa (May 13, 1717-November 29, 1780); Marie Antoinette became the wife of the future King of France, Louis XVI (August 23, 1754-January 21, 1793); a beautiful but unpopular queen, she became one of its most famous victims; her extravagant lifestyle of giving lavish parties and buying expensive gowns and jewelry while many French citizens were starving made her and the monarchy unpopular; when King Louis was overthrown, a Revolutionary Tribunal found her guilty of aiding the enemy and inciting civil war in France; she was jailed and soon afterward beheaded; she gained some measure of sympathy for her courage and dignity while in prison and at her execution; the expression "Let them eat cake" was attributed to her as an example of her alleged indifference to the starving people of France who had no bread to eat, but no record exists that she ever said it; her life and death was dramatized in a 1938 U.S. film, a 1955 French film, and again in a 2006 U.S. film, all titled Marie Antoinette;
