Therefore, Maria was an innocent victim of the French corruption that nicknamed her Madame Deficit despite she often gave examples of almsgiving. As Campan observed in her Memoirs of Maria Antoinette, when she married the dauphin, Maria Antoinette was a frightened adolescence who had to defend herself from the enemies of the court. And it was exactly “the mistreatment undergo everyday that made her decide to enjoy life, organize parties, look beautiful and avoid the senseless rule of the French etiquette.”12 Those logical wishes for a 19 year old were used by pamphlets as a way to damage even more the reputation of Maria Antoinette.

Her actions proved that no matter where she went, “her voice [will always be] full of money.” (Fitzgerald 127). As the Beatles would say, money cannot buy love.
