A Queen’s Convictions
Setting down the monogrammed signet Marie Antoinette watched as the wax cooled thinking of the letter to be sent to her mother Empress Marie Therese of Austria. She knew she was making a controversial move in encouraging her mother and brother the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II to help back the American colonies in their fight against the English crown. As of yet France stayed undecided on their stance. With a growing following Marie felt it would just take the backing of her mother and brother to throw the scales in the continent’s favor. Running her fingers over the seal cast in wax she closes her eyes and prays favor over this bold political move she firmly believed in. Favor not only for herself and the crown but for the people fighting for liberty and freedom.
