Welcome to Episode 2 of Tea at Trianon Radio, dedicated to discussing the life and times of Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France and Navarre. Your hostess is Elena Maria Vidal, the author of four historical novels, including TRIANON and MADAME ROYALE. In this our second broadcast we will again be talking about the truth behind the legend of Queen Marie-Antoinette's romance with the Swede Count Axel von Fersen. The legend has been featured in novels, films and even many works of non-fiction. But is there any historical evidence of an affair? Did the Queen really love Fersen? What were her feelings for her husband Louis XVI? Such questions and more will be explored  based upon scholarship, both old and new. We will not be taking calls today but do email Elena a question or a comment at emvidal@planetrussell.net. And what are the 3 rules? Be polite, be polite, be polite.
Tea at Trianon Radio is brought to you by Mayapple Books in St. Michaels, Maryland, dedicated to publishing Modern Classics. Please visit Mayapple Books. Much of what we will be discussing today can be found on Elena's Tea at Trianon Blog and will also be included in her new non-fiction book on Marie-Antoinette entitled Marie-Antoinette, Daughter of the Caesars, to be published in September 2015 by Mayapple Books.
