Text: Signature image of Marie Antoinette (at Trianon), by George Stuart.

Her growing unpopularity drove her further into an escapist lifestyle.

Seven years after her marriage to Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette bore their first child, a daughter. When she gave Louis a son, the King gave her an exquisite chateau, the Petit Trianon. The Queen abandoned the court at Versailles and retired to Trianon. Later a miniature farm was constructed for her and her friends so the Queen could live a “simple” life.
