The fruit of years of research, Trianon corrects many of the popular misconceptions about Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. The novel chronicles their resolution and dignity in the face of crushing disappointments, innumerable humiliations, personal and national tragedy, and death itself. Originally published in 1997, Trianon has received critical acclaim and gained an international following. Mayapple Books is happy to announce the third edition of this timeless portrait of one of the most enigmatic and tragic royal couples who ever lived.
