Summary
This volume recounts the life and times of Marie-Thérèse Charlotte de France (1778-1851), the eldest child of King Louis XVI of France and his wife, Queen Marie Antoinette. After the execution of the King and Queen in 1793, their young daughter remained imprisoned. Released on her seventeenth birthday, she faced an uncertain future. Rumor spread that the traumatized princess had switched places with an illegitimate half sister, to live out her days as the mysterious "Dark Countess." Now, two hundred years later, this volume contends that it has solved this mystery, creating a biography of a remarkable woman who both defined and shaped an era
