The closing years of the French monarchy could scarcely have found a more faithful chronicler, or one better fitted for the task both by training and situation, than Madame Campan. Introduced into the Court of Louis XV as a young girl, she became one of the household of Marie Antoinette immediately after that Princess came from Austria to wed the Dauphin. She followed the fortunes of her royal mistress with unswerving devotion until the prison gates separated them. The reader will find here a series of vivid pen pictures of a stirring time. Louis XV and Louis XVI live again for us, surrounded by their Courts. But the chief interest attaches to the Queen, who laid down her life to expiate the crime of monarchy.
