Women’s History is chock full of truly bitchin’ bitches and Marie Antoinette is one of our favorites. Sure, l'Autrichienne, the Austrian Bitch, had a nasty reputation. But, while she was often mocked for her frivolity, letters discovered after her death reveal a savvy diplomat and business women campaigning to save the family business and avert the French Revolution. Nonetheless, she couldn’t save her own head and was executed in Paris at the age of 48. Who knows if Marie ever uttered the words, “Let them eat cake.” Chances are though, things would have turned out better, if only they ate chocolate.
Eat more chocolate. Save more dogs.
