All previous books on Marie-Therese have perpetuated the theory that she switched identities after the French Revolution in order to protect her safety. This book lays all the spurious rumours and far-fetched conspiracy theories to rest. Susan Nagel has discovered previously unpublished letters that reveal that Marie-Therese had serious doubts that her brother, Louis Charles, died in prison. Her research has uncovered undiscovered journals and letters.
Susan Nagel is the author of Mistress of the Elgin Marbles, a critically acclaimed biography of Mary Nisbet, the Countess of Elgin. A professor in the humanities department of Marymount Manhattan College, she lives in New York.
