Welcome to Episode 7 of Tea at Trianon Radio, dedicated to discussing the life and times of Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France and Navarre. I am Elena Maria Vidal, the author of four historical novels, including TRIANON and MADAME ROYALE which are about Marie-Antoinette and her family. In this our seventh broadcast we will be talking about the charitable works of Marie-Antoinette on behalf of the poor, whioch were more extensive than most people realize. Both Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette made caring for the disadvantaged of society a priority throughout their years in power and even before. We will not be taking calls today but do email me a question or a comment at emvidal@planetrussell.net.
