LES LIAISONS DE MARIE ANTOINETTE :

SALON DE COMPAGNIE

“The Queen occasionally remained a whole month at Petit Trianon, and had established there all the ways of life in a chateau. She entered the sitting-room without driving the ladies from their pianoforte or embroidery. The gentlemen continued their billiards or backgammon without suffering her presence to interrupt them….” Memoirs of Madame Campan
