1. Madame de Lamballe reading to Marie Antoinette and her daughter, Marie Thérèse Charlotte (1858). Joseph Caraud (French, 1821-1905). 

    Queen Marie Antoinette appointed Marie Thérèse Superintendent of the Queen’s Household, the highest rank possible for a lady-in-waiting at Versailles. Marie Thérèse was by nature reserved and there was never any gossip about her private life. However, in popular anti-monarchist propaganda of the time, she was regularly portrayed in pornographic pamphlets, showing her as the queen’s lesbian lover to undermine the public image of the monarchy.
