What Is Marie Antoinette’s Zodiac Sign?

Marie Antoinette was born on November 2nd, 1755. Her zodiac sign is Scorpio, a water sign denoting strength, independence, and intensity.

Marie Antoinette was the last queen of the French monarchy who is perhaps best remembered for her extravagant lifestyle and infamous quote encouraging the people of France to eat cake. She was born in Vienna, Austria, to Empress Maria Theresa of the House of Hapsburg and Holy Roman Emperor Francis I. From a young age, Marie was presented with the best education and trained in the most exquisite courtly etiquette, so as to properly represent the Hapsburg monarchy. At the age of 15, she was married to the heir apparent to the throne of France, Louis XVI, with whom she had four children.

As queen, Marie Antoinette was famously extravagant, and irresponsible with her family’s money. She frequently purchased lavish wardrobes and elaborate furnishings, and indulged herself in fine luxuries. She was heavily influenced by the court of Versailles and shaped her lifestyle by the court’s standards, but this opulence was ill received by the starving, lower classes of France. The dissatisfaction of the people and Marie’s seeming misplacement of the monarchy’s wealth, led to the French Revolution in 1789. Marie Antoinette and her husband attempted to flee to Austria, but were captured, and eventually beheaded during the Reign of Terror in 1793. Despite her lavish lifestyle, Marie was known to find solace in the arts and architects of the day, and she was known to be both generous and devoted to her children.
