“To be queen meant no more to Marie Antoinette . . . than to be admired as the smartest, the most coquettish, the best dressed, the most spoiled and above all the best amused woman at court; to be the arbiter elegantiarum, the person who set the tone for a society rich in artificial distinction and one which regarded itself as the world.”

Stefan Zweig, Marie-Antoinette, 1933
