Friendship between Austria

and France...

...must be cemented by marriage.

My youngest daughter, Antoine...

...will be queen of France.


The court of France

is not like Vienna.

Listen closely to

Ambassador Mercy's council.

All eyes will be on you.


Do you like him?

He has kind eyes.

He's definitely very French.

- Three. Four.

- Six.

Are we there yet?

Yes, we have arrived at Schttern for

the official handover.

Then you will be presented to the king

and to your fianc, Louis Auguste.

Your Royal Highness, may I present

your mistress of the household...

...Comtesse de Noailles.

Your Royal Highness.


This structure for

the handover ceremony...

...has been built precisely astride

the borders of the two great lands.

You have entered on Austrian soil... will exit on French

as the dauphine of France.

Now you must bid farewell

to your party...

...and leave all of Austria behind.



You can have as many

French dogs as you like.

It is a custom...

...that the bride retain nothing

belonging to a foreign court.

An etiquette always observed

on such an occasion.

You're lucky.

Apparently she's quite beautiful.

I'll probably end up with someone

who looks like a dog.

- Or a horse.

- Or a horse.

I've heard she's really nice.

- Think they got rabbits here?

- Maybe.

Come on.

You notice anything strange

about me lately?

It's so muddy here.

I know. My stomach feels

a little bit sick.

Are you feeling better now?

Are you feeling better, Camille?

- I wonder if our little doggie is sick.

- Feel a little sickly.


Oh, my goodness, it's so

uncomfortable underfoot.

Come on.

There we are.

How is her bosom?

I have not looked at the archduchess's

bosom, Your Majesty.

Oh, didn't you?

It's the first thing I look at.

The Duc de Choiseul.

The foreign minister

who was instrumental in this union.

I shall never forget that you were

responsible for my happiness.

And that of France.


Here comes the Austrian.

I hope you like apple strudel.

May I present Madame la Dauphine,

Marie Antoinette.

My dear grandfather king.

Welcome, madame.

Let me present my grandson,

Louis Auguste.

Welcome, madame.

She looks like a child.


Thank you.

- Thank you.

- You're welcome, madame.




To the dauphin

and dauphine of France.

May you have many

healthy children...

...and produce an heir to our throne.

Good luck.

And good work.

Apparently, nothing happened,

Your Majesty.


- Nothing.

- Nothing.

Oh, dear.

Madame... the morning

dressing ceremony...

...rights of entry are given

to members of the high court.

Major rights to princesses of the blood

and mistresses of the household...

...while minor rights

to the valets and charges.

Anyone with rights of entry

may enter at any time... you must pay attention to

acknowledging properly each arrival.

And you must not

reach for anything...

...for the handing of an item

to the dauphine is a guarded privilege.

Must go to the highest rank

in the room.

For example,

the Princesse de Lamballe... a princess of the blood

by marriage.


Thank you.

- It's cold.

- Yes.

Good morning.

So now the position must go

to the Duchess of Char...

...because she is also

a princess of the blood.


So now, as a member

of the royal family...

...your sister-in-law, the Comtesse de

Provence, must have the honor.

This is ridiculous.

This, madame, is Versailles.

So I've heard you make keys

as a hobby?


And you enjoy making keys?
