Fourteen-year-old Marie Antoinette, Archduchess of Austria, marries the future king Louis XVI of France, to seal an alliance between the two rival countries. But over time it becomes apparent that her husband is more interested in hunting than in politics. As France's financial crisis worsens, food shortages and riots increase. Life in court continues in uninterrupted splendour – oblivious of the struggles of the French people – until the bitter end.
