Marie Online

Marie Antoinette Forums, Google Books, Blogs and more!

Where does your blog queen go to for an online fix of fashion, history or fun? Look about you for some of my favorite. And please, feel free to let me know if there are others I should add. (Note: This is a work in progress. If I’ve omitted your very wonderful site, please let me know, either at whatwouldmarieantoinettedo at gmail.com or in the comments. Also, I’ve included only sites related to Marie or history at this time, but there’s a chance I might run a page for others later).
