  • Marie Antoinette was always very interested in the gossip and social lives of the court.
  • Some knew that although she may not have lacked spirit, she was not well educated, and she was not interested by political matters. She also did not produce an heir for 8 years.
  • Because of her lack of education, she found court meetings tedious and regularly ever attended them.
  • She didn't leave the grounds of Versailles as she was not popular among the third estate, who named her Madame Deficit, and claimed she was at fault for the increased cost of bread from the bad harvests that they had had.
