Although born into the Austrian royal family, Marie Antoinette’s (1755-1793) infamous position as the ‘Last Queen of France’ immortalised her as an icon of French history. Marked by opulence and profligacy, her reign over France eventuated through her marriage to King Louis XVI (1754–1793). Dubbed Madame Déficit because of her infamous spending habits, she was one of the catalysts of the French Revolution, which ultimately led to the bloody downfall of the French dynastic line.
