Title -  Marie Antoinette, Queen of France and Navarre


Description -  Marie Antoinette (November 2, 1755 - October 16, 1793), Queen of France and Navarre, a title she held until September 1791, when, as the French Revolution proceeded, she became Queen of the French, a title she held until September 21, 1792.  During the Revolution, after the government had placed the royal family under house arrest in the Tuileries Palace in October 1789, several events linked to Marie Antoinette, in particular the June 1791 attempt to flee, and her role in the War of the First Coalition, had disastrous effects on French popular opinion.  On August 10, 1792, the attack on the Tuileries forced the royal family to take refuge at the Assembly, and on August 13, the family was imprisoned in the Temple.  On September 21, 1792, the monarchy was abolished.  After a two-day trial begun on October 14, 1793, Marie Antoinette was convicted by the Revolutionary Tribunal of high treason, and executed by guillotine on Place de la Révolution on October 16, 1793.
