She who pwns people with history

Marie Antoinette’s actual wedding dress, sadly, no longer exists. But there are some extant 18th century wedding gowns worn by other royal women that might give a bit of a glimpse as to what her dress may have looked like.

The first was worn by Hedwig Elisabeth Charlotte of Holstein-Gottorp, Queen of Sweden, when she married the future Charles XIII in 1774.

The second was worn by Sophia Magdalena of Denmark, also Queen of Sweden, when she married the future Gustav III in 1766.
