DID YOU KNOW...

 DID YOU KNOW...


One Time, 100 Imposters Claimed to Be Marie Antoinette's Dead Son

After the French Revolution, eight-year-old Louis XVII was imprisoned and then never seen in public ever again. His parents were executed in 1793 and, afterward, he was horrifically abused, neglected, and left isolated in a prison cell in the Paris Temple. In 1795, he died of Tuberculous at 10-years-old. His body was buried in secret in a mass grave. Years later, dozens of men came forward claiming to be him because a Bourbon restoration was a possibility and a successful claimant could then potentially find himself on the throne of France.

  7. Yes, many claimed it, but none were proven. It breaks my heart when people take it out on the children for what the parents did, it's not like a child can help his parentage.

    1. I certainly agree with you there. So many crimes even today taken out on innocent children.
