Marie-Antoinette is one of the most famous characters in history, but much of what we think we know—including her most famous comment, ‘Let them eat cake’—is spurious. Join Professor Catriona Seth, Oxford's Marshal Foch Professor of French Literature and an authority on 18th-century France, to discover what we can learn from the Queen’s letters in our latest #OxfordAtHome talk.

Friday 17 July, 3.15-3.45pm 

This talk will be broadcast here on YouTube, and on our main Facebook & Twitter channels.
