Marie-Antoinette, born Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna von Habsburg-Lothringen (2 November 1755 – 16 October 1793), an Archduchess of Austria, was the fifteenth and second youngest child of Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor and Empress Maria Theresa.
Marie-Antoinette was a music-lover. She learned to play the harp, the harpsichord and the flute. During the family’s gatherings in the evenings, she would sing, as she had a beautiful voice. She also began to participate in amateur plays and musicals, starting in 1780, in a theatre built for her at the Petit Trianon.
In April 1770, upon her marriage (at the age of 14 years and 5 months) to Louis- Auguste, heir to the throne of France, she became Dauphine of France. On 10 May 1774, when her husband ascended the throne as Louis XVI, upon the death of his grandfather Louis XV, she became Queen of France and Navarre, a title she held until September 1791, when, as the French Revolution proceeded, she became Queen of the French, a title she held until 21 September 1792.
