      Today, November 2, is the birthday of Marie Antoinette in 1755. It was the same day as the great earthquake in Lisbon, Portugal. Her own life too would see the political earthquake that was the French Revolution which would shake to the foundation all the monarchies of Europe. Marie Antoinette was at the epicenter of that earthquake which would see her tumble from being the most famous, richest and brightest of all Queens to becoming a humble prisoner in solitary confinement whose fate was execution by beheading by her former subjects. Marie Antoinette began life this day in the royal palace of Vienna and would end her life at just 37 years old at the Place de Revolution on the guillotine in Paris.
