"My Very Worthy and Honored Companion"

Louis XVI insisted that Marie-Antoinette should become Regent of France in the event of his death. (Via Vive la Reine.)
As long as I live, I shall do all that is possible to carry out my duties and restore peace and happiness to my people. If God disposes of me, the Queen my very worthy and honored companion, will become Regent with full rights. Her good judgement, her good heart and her virtues are guarantees to me of the wisdom of her administration; her fondness for my son will redouble her natural attitude and zeal. —Louis XVI in 1791

These words of the King remind one of Proverbs 31:10-28. <><
