Welcome to Tea at Trianon Radio, dedicated to rehabilitating the reputation of Marie-Antoinette de Lorraine d'Autriche, Queen of France and Navarre. I am Elena Maria Vidal, the author of four historical novels as well as a new biography of Marie-Antoinette entitled Marie-Antoinette, Daughter of the Caesars: Her Life, Her Times, Her Legacy. Pour yourself a cup of tea as we travel back into the past. Today we will be discussing why so many royals died of smallpox, tuberculosis and measles. We will not be taking phone calls but please email me with a question or comment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
