How did societal expectations influence the events of Marie Antoinettes life

1 Answer


Answer: From the moment she arrived in France she was forced to dress and behave in how the French court saw fit. She was forced to abandon everything Austrian about her. Her clothing, dog, everything. They thought she did not dress French enough, and once she did, they accused her of spending too much money (even though she did not spend more than any other French queen before her). This led to the public's distrust of her.
