Born on November 2, 1755, in Vienna, Austria, Marie Antoinette helped provoke the popular unrest that led to the French Revolution and to the overthrow of the monarchy in August 1792, in part with her famous quote addressing the starving French populace: 'Let them eat cake.' As a 20-year consort to Louis XVI, she was beheaded nine months after he was by order of the Revolutionary tribunal.
