Science reveals the content of the letters of Marie Antoinette and her lover



Trapped in the Tuileries, Marie Antoinette wrote on January 4, 1792: “I will finish, not without telling you, dear and dear friend, that I love you madly and that I could never survive for a moment without adoring you.” She addresses her lover, Count Axel de Virsen, who a few weeks ago wrote to her: “What shall we become, my dear friend? Think about it. Without you there is no happiness for me, the universe is nothing without you ”. These forbidden words of love did not appear between the Queen of France and the Swedish diplomat. For more than two centuries they remained hidden. We are in the National Archives. In this little car, a part of French history revolves around him. Dozens of letters exchanged between lovers in the midst of the French Revolution. Several lines have been carefully reviewed. Science has managed to decipher much of this. Each time, emotional passengers are censored. This historian has read it all. I was surprised. “They have known each other for over 15 years and are still there putting themselves on a pedestal of worship. We are not in a tired relationship, we are still in a very exciting new relationship where all of your hearts and your entire life has been compromised. That is the extraordinary thing. This relationship takes a new look at the role of Count Axel de Virsen. He was known to have been one of the organizers of Varennes’s failed escape, and was known to be close to the Queen. Now I understand that he wanted to save the French monarchy as much as he loved Marie Antoinette. No one would interfere in the European courts in Brussels and Vienna. He had even written to Russia asking foreign powers to support the French monarchy. Which is still amazing. Such reviews have always withstood science. But thanks to X-rays, researchers have been able to distinguish the anchor used, revealing hidden letters. A precise and complex function. “We change the strategy with every letter and every word. Sometimes you have to do things a little differently, or even completely different. Investigators found that it was Verson himself who monitored the letters to certainly protect the queen’s dignity. However, seven of the fifteen letters have yet to be deciphered. This passionate correspondence has not yet revealed all its secrets ”.
