Who once lived in Paris and who lives in now ?Let’s start from the famous.
1) Marie Antoinette
Her full name was Maria Antonia Josefa Johanna von Habsburg-Lothringen. She wasn’t French but she is one of the best-known monarchs of France. Born an Austrian princess, she was a favourite daughter of Maria Theresa, who arranged a special marriage for her. As a result, she had to leave Vienna for Paris at the age of 15 to marry Louise-Auguste, the future Louise XVI. Due to their different lifestyles and characters, Maria was unhappy in her marriage, which remained unconsummated for seven years. The young and beautiful queen became the subject of rumours for her extravagant lavish pastimes – she enjoyed masked balls, gambling, theatre plays and giving expensive gifts. Much sensation was caused by the Diamond Necklace Affair, in which she was implicated. She was the mother of four children. Deprived of her crown and riches, Maria was imprisoned and publicly executed by guillotine during the turbulent times of the French Revolution. The last Parisian address of queen Marie Antoinette was an isolated cell in the Consiergerie where she was a Prisoner n° 280.
