“Secrets d’histoire” from Monday, June 14, 2021. Stéphane Bern’s historical magazine is making its return this Monday on France 3 and France.TV. For this number (already broadcast, editor’s note), the channel has chosen to tell you the fate of Marie Leszczynska, a courageous and unfortunately deceived woman who nevertheless held her reign for more than 40 years, the longest reign for a sovereign of France.
Polish princess, married to Louis XV, Marie Leczinska is a penniless young girl, the second child of a deposed king of Poland, Stanislas.
Unfortunately for Marie, in love with her husband, the fairy tale comes to an end. The sovereign also became the most outrageously deceived queen in the history of France, to such an extent that today we mainly know the king’s mistresses: the Pompadour or, later, the du Barry.
To forget these humiliations, “the good queen” takes refuge in piety, play, music and, above all, gluttony. A passion that she shares with her beloved father, Stanislas. A father appointed by Louis XV at the head of Lorraine.
Mother of ten children from France and grandmother of Louis XVI, Marie Leczinska is a worthy and intelligent queen, who humbly held her rank for 43 years.
