Dear Barbara,

Did anyone else notice the small bit of news about the Hubble Space Telescope? NASA changed its mind about abandoning Hubble, and has agreed to send
one last service mission up to extend Hubble’s life.

#3. Marie Antoinette

by Barbara J. Feldman

Marie Antoinette Printable (** for premium members only)

Marie Antoinette (1755-1793) was born into Austrian royalty, the youngest daughter of Emperor
Francis I and Maria Theresa. As a young teen, she married the grandson of Louis XV, and
became Queen of France at the age of nineteen. As Queen, however, Marie Antoinette was
extravagant, frivolous, and widely criticized by the people. She died on the guillotine during the
French Revolution.

Chateau de Versailles: Marie Antoinette
“Back in 1623, Louis XIII – father of Louis XIV – built a ‘hunting lodge, a little gentleman’s
chateau’ of brick, stone, and slate at Versailles.” In 1682, after years of additional construction,
Versailles became the official residence of the Louis XIV and the Court of France. In 1770
fourteen-year old Marie Antoinette arrived at Versailles from her native Vienna to marry the
French Crown Prince. This single illustrated page tells the story of her life at Versailles, with
links to many additional pages within the Versailles site.

Lady Reading: Marie Antoinette
Claudia Solacini is an Italian webmaster with a degree in Art History. I like her site because it
shows a sympathetic side of Marie Antoinette, a woman “misunderstood in her time and in ours”.
Marie Antoinette’s story is told with a biography, a timeline, and a portrait gallery. The
discussion forum is entirely in Italian, but for those interested in more research, there are three
public-domain books (in English) about Marie Antoinette available for free download. The
Cinema section summarizes more than thirty films featuring the infamous French queen; the
Book list is even longer.

Marie Antoinette Online
Marie Antoinette “was the beautiful Queen of France who became a symbol for the wanton
extravagance of the 18th century monarchy, and was stripped of her riches and finery, imprisoned
and beheaded by her own subjects during the French Revolution that began in 1789.” My
favorite click at this bilingual site (English and Italian) is the story of the diamond necklace
scandal. There is also a forum to visit (this one in English), a biography page, and a gallery that
includes not only eighteenth-century portraits but also stills from the 2006 Marie Antoinette
movie starring Kirsten Dunst.

#5. Note from a Retiring Reader

Dear Barbara,
I hate the idea of stopping the e-mails but I’m going to be retiring on Nov. 16th, 2006. I have really enjoyed your newsletters and have used many ideas with the parents I work with. I have been with Knox County Dept. of Jobs & Family Services in the Div. of Child and Family Services for a little over 14 years now and have really loved the ideas I’ve gotten from your
site and have shared them with others.
Keep up the great work. Your site is terrific but it’s time for me to move on.
Thank you again for being there on the internet supplying people like me with so much great information.
Sincerely Yours,
Peggy Ake, Parent Educator, Social Worker 4
