She who pwns people with history
Marie Antoinette gently pushed the children back into the King’s room and stood alone facing the mob. She made a deep curtsy, her hands crossed on her chest. These men and women who had been calling for her death several moment earlier were now completely awestruck by her composure and pained dignity. They clamoured loudly: “To Paris! To Paris!” Vanquished by the Queen’s charisma, they began to shout: “Long live the Queen!”
