Marie-Antoinette, at her trial:

Faced with the accusation of incest brought by Hébert, and reopened by a juror who pointed out that the accused had not responded to this infamous case, Marie-Antoinette replied:
"The reason I didn't answer is that nature itself refuses to answer such a charge against a mother. I appeal to all those who may be here."

Marie-Antoinette also said:
"Remember, they won't use a grain of poison against me. The Brinvilliers are not from this century: we have slander, which is much better to kill people; and it is through it that I will be killed. "

This "Farewell to the most tender of friends. How awful this word is for my heart but it is necessary, I only have the strength to kiss you" also touches me a lot but it is also because of what I know about it in the story of Marie-Antoinette and Yolande. boudoi30

"May my son never forget his father's last words that I expressly repeat to him: may he never seek revenge for our death."
"I forgive all my enemies for the harm they have done to me."
"I had friends; the idea of being separated from them forever and their pain is one of the greatest regrets I have when I die. At least let them know that until the last moment, I thought of them."

-----------------------------------

The report that Marie-Antoinette writes to Madame de Tourzel to present Her children at the time of Madame de Polignac's departure particularly moves me because it shows that the Queen is a modern mother and not the royal layer, a role that was only assigned to Her during Her marriage:
"My son is four years old, four months minus two days, I'm not talking about his size or his exterior, just look at him; his health has always been good, but even in the cradle we realized that his nerves were very delicate and that the slightest extraordinary noise had an effect on him; it was late for his first teeth, but they came without diseases or accidents; it was only in the last ones, and I think it was in the sixth, that he had a convulsion in Fontainebleau; since then he had two, one in the winter of 1987 or 1988 and the other in his inoculation, but the latter was very small.
The delicacy of his nerves means that a noise to which he is not accustomed always frightens him; for example, he is afraid of dogs because he has heard them barking near him.
I have never forced him to see them, because I believe that as his reason comes, his fears will pass; he is like all strong and healthy children very dizzy, very light and violent in his anger, but he is good child, tender and even caressing, when his carelessness does not prevail; he has a disproportionate self-esteem that by driving him well can turn one day to his advantage; until he is comfortable with someone, he knows how to take on himself and even devour his impatience and anger to appear sweet and kind; he is very faithful when he has promised something, but he is very indiscreet, he easily repeats what he has heard, and often without wishing to lie he adds to it what his imagination has shown him, it is his greatest flaw, and on which he must be corrected.
Moreover, I repeat, he is a good child, and with sensitivity and at the same time firmness, without being too severe, we will do with him what we want, but the severity would revolt him, because he has a lot of character for his age; and, to give an example, from his earliest childhood, the word Pardon has always shocked him; he will do and say whatever we want when he is wrong, but the word Pardon he says only with tears and infinite sorrows.
My children have always been accustomed to having great self-confidence, and when they have been wrong, to telling me themselves, it makes me look more upset and saddened by what they are doing than angry; I have accustomed them all to the fact that a yes or no pronounced by me is irrevocable, but I always give them a reason within their age range, so that they cannot believe that it is mood on my part.
My son can't read and learns very badly; but he's too dizzy to apply himself, he has no idea of the height in his head, and I want it to continue. Our children always learn what they are early enough.
He loves his sister very much and has a good heart: whenever he is pleased with something, either to go somewhere, or to be given something, his first move is always to ask for his sister as well; he was born gay, he needs to be outdoors a lot for his health, and I think it is better to let him play and work on the ground, on the terrace than to take him for a walk further: the exercise that small children take when running and playing in the air is healthier than forcing them to walk, which often tires the kidneys.."
Yours sincerely.

When she leaves the Temple, she hits her head at the counter, for lack of thinking to bend down; and as one asks her if she has not hurt herself, she answers:
"Oh! No! No! Nothing can hurt me now anymore.

I am making a jacket for the king, who is not making much progress, but I hope that with God's grace it will be finished in a few years.

Marie-Antoinette may have been casual and inconsistent, but she wasn't stupid... she had wit!

-----------------------------------

The Baroness of Oberkirch tells in her memoirs that Lauzun followed the queen step by step and sat at her door like a watchdog. But she wasn't paying attention to him.

-----------------------------------

In despair and as she was getting into her carriage to return from Trianon to Versailles, he fell on one knee, presenting the other to her to use as a stepping stone, instead of the small velvet step intended for this purpose.

-----------------------------------

The queen then looked at him for the first time, and pretending not to recognize him, she called his page and said to him:

-----------------------------------

"Please tell me, sir, that this boy is being sent back; he's a clumsy man, he can't even open the door of a carriage."

-----------------------------------

In a letter dated June 13, 1776, addressed to her mother, the queen shows complacency about her situation in court, without any bitterness:
I have nothing to say against my sisters-in-law, with whom I live well; but if my dear mother could see things up close, the comparison would not be disadvantageous to me. The Countess d'Artois has a great advantage, that of having children; but it may be the only thing that reminds me of her, and it is not my fault if I do not have that merit. For Madam, she has more wit, but I wouldn't want to change her reputation with her.

-----------------------------------

We believe the Countess d'Artois is still fat. It's a rather unpleasant sight for me after seven years of marriage. However, there would be injustice in finding the right mood.

-----------------------------------

"she dominated all the ladies in her court with her head, like a great oak tree in a forest, rising above the trees that surround her. »

-----------------------------------

I exist my beloved and it is to adore you.

-----------------------------------

Count d'Hézècques wrote:
For Madam, she has more wit, but I wouldn't want to change her reputation with her.
The Countess was gratinated, that's for sure. She was an alcoholic, among other things.

Letter from Mercy to the Prince of Kaunitz dated 22 February 1789:
"The difference of opinion and conduct between Mr. and Mr. Count d'Artois regarding the King's service causes a schism and forms parties. The Queen is saddened by the Monarch's reluctance to put order into it and the public's unfairness in believing that the Queen could make up for it. For her part, the lady gives substance to a lot of things. This princess has been drinking for some time and the result has been some disgusting scenes. All this combined deprives the Queen of the resources she could find in a way to be better regulated among the royal family. The well-recognized danger of the favorite societies does not allow it to be used, so that the Queen finds herself more isolated."
