    I really like this video. The only thing I take issue with is the somewhat historically inaccurate portrayal of Marie Antoinette. She very much lived extravagantly off the back breaking labor of the peasantry, as was expected of her from her also debauched peerage, but it’s widely believed by historians that the glib ‘let them eat cake’ phrase was never something she said and was only circulated and associated with her to help demonize her as well as the nobility. She was a very public figure, but women in much of French history could not hold any real, direct governmental power. However, because of her notoriety, and the fact that she was a foreign born Austrian princess (the French and Austrians actively distrusted each other) imported to France to seal a treaty between the two nations and to be a royal baby making machine, she was a perfect and widely recognizable scapegoat.

    About the "let them eat cake " thing, I'm pretty sure it's not true, but it actually happened in Chinese history.( I think in the Jin dynasty) An official reported to the Emperor that the people were in such terrible conditions that they couldn't afford to eat rice, and the emperor replied, "Then why don't they eat minced meat?"

    I sympathize with King Louis XVI. What a hard job. Not to mention it’s not like he got much training or was in any way prepared. He seems like he was a decent guy. I feel like if he was a private citizen he would have been happier. He cared a lot about his people and his family. The reason they say he constantly dithered and switched sides is because he wanted to make everyone happy. Also it’s not we’ll documented but apparently the rural population of France loved him to a large extent. Lastly he tried reform but because of his diminutive personality even didn’t push it through when he ran into opposition from his ministers and nobility. Also Louis XV was an awful king. Nowhere near as good as his predecessor Louis XIV the sun king. A lot of this is his fault.
