Marie AntoinetteOn October 16, 1793, Queen Marie Antoinette of France was executed during the French Revolution. She was only 37 years old. But her life was one to go down in history where she would be regarded, wrongfully, as one of the greatest villainous monarchs of France. Although her actions during the final days of the crown may have been grossly exaggerated, many books and even a movie have been produced retelling the final years of royal rule in France.
