Marie Antoinette

Imprisonment in this place of evil, the separat-
ion from my husband Louis & the children & not know-
ing their whereabouts, the humiliation, faith, de-
gradation, this is an entry right into the depths of
hell. The devil alone knows how all this will end.
Why do the peasants treat us in this revolting way?
I do not deserve being treated in such an abominable
manner. What have I to do with the fact that
they do not have cake to eat? Do they not understand
who I am? I am the Queen of France.
I am not God.
