Joséphine-Éléonore-Marie-Pauline de Galard de Brassac de Béarn (1825–1860), Princesse de Broglie, Ingres

Yolande Martine de Polastron, duchess de Polignac pastel by Elisabeth-Louise Vigee-Lebrun (Gramont collection), 1787 The Duchess de Polignac was Marie Antoinette's ebullient friend who reaped the benefits from her association with the queen but abandoned her in her final hour. She would die in England a few days after learning of the Queen's death. Her family said it was from a broken-heart. I, however, am skeptical of their diagnosis. ~Leah Marie Brown
