Welcome to Episode 6 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 sixth broadcast we will be talking about Marie-Antoinette the Mother. Her children were her life and she wanted to bring them up herself. She went through a lot to bring children into the world.We will discuss each of her four children and her adopted children as well. We will not be taking calls today but do email me a question or a comment at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tea at Trianon Radio is brought to you by Mayapple Books in St. Michaels, Maryland, dedicated to publishing Modern Classics. Visit Mayapple Books at www.mayapplebooks.net.
Much of what we will be discussing today can be found on my Tea at Trianon Blog and will also be included in my new non-fiction book on Marie-Antoinette entitled Marie-Antoinette, Daughter of the Caesars, to be published in September 2015 by Mayapple Books.
