KQED Life: Wed, Mar 2, 2016 -- 7:00 PM
The program examines the life of a callous queen whose opulent lifestyle and open sexuality made her one of the most controversial monarchs in history. Stuck in a loveless marriage and marked by numerous scandals that included gambling and love affairs, Marie Antoinette became the centerpiece in a revolution about change in hierarchy. The two-hour film traces her journey from the splendors of her childhood in the palaces of the mighty Austro-Hungarian Empire to her final hours in a squalid French prison cell.
