MARIE at age of sixteen a Queen

Pretty little Lady..
MARIE had four Children
Two died of tuberculosis
The Two children left,
Boy died in Prison at the hands of
THE FRENCH RAT Robespierre. If you are ever called
Robespierre it is not a complement!
The ten year old Charles (The Dauphin) his last cries
were for his Mother. The Doctor Pellelan Cut his heart out
and kept it on his Mantel. SOME DOCTOR!!!!
It gets worse..
Here is a lady who lost her head over a necklace.
 Portrait by Joseph Ducreux
This is the House built for Marie.
In Maine.
She would not leave her Children.

**************Marie Antoinette ....The Last French Queen
History has it that Captain Stephen Clough (or Capt. Nathan Cloud)
 Owned a sloop called The Sally.
(Sally was his Daughters name.) Think I'll paint the BRiG.









The Sally was impounded
by the French. He was trying to
 rescue her And had built a house
for her in Wiscasset Maine. The ship was loaded with her cats and possessions.
Marie would not go and leave her Son. At that time other than Boston,
Wiscasset was the hub of 19'th century trade.
The house was moved to Edgecomb Maine. It still stands today.
This is the explanation why so many RARE antiques have been found in Maine over generations.THE MAINE COON CAT was a result from the beautiful
Persian and Angora cats that jumped off the ship.

The only one to survive the Reign of Terror,
was the Daughter Therese. She was released and sent
to Vienna after years of imprisonment. She was then
Madame la Dauphine Married and Died of pneumonia 1851.
Fifty eight years to the date of anniversary of her Mothers execution.
Most the images were from the encyclopedia and
Maine Historical society The Furniture of Marie's is in
the Knox Mansion, in Thomaston, Maine. Worth a visit,
also a desk a gift from George Washington.
