The False Chevalier
Or, The Lifeguard of Marie AntoinetteBook - 1898
Lighthall's work is based on "a packet of worm-eaten letters and documents found in an old French-Canadian house on the banks of the St. Lawrence." During Marie Antoinette's imprisonment, there were three attempts to free her and her children. The French Revolution exposed the deep rift that existed in France between those who believed in the Monarchy and those wishing to destroy it completely.
