Marie Antoinette Action Figure

The action figure you've been waiting for. An ejecting head Marie Antoinette Action Figure! Marie Antoinette’s reign as the Queen of France was clouded in controversy. Her extravagant lifestyle led many to believe that she was not worthy of the throne and eventually she became widely despised as the epitome of incompetence and frivolity within the French royalty.

During the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette was stripped of her crown, imprisoned and beheaded by guillotine in front of a cheering crowd.

Marie Antoinette was pillaried for nothing. History has judged her poorly. She was not as uncaring about the poor as she was made out to be.

Her infamous quote, "Let them eat cake.", had a different meaning then. Cake is the term applied to bread that overflows the pan and bakes on the sheet. Rather than throw it out she was telling them to give it to the poor instead.
