Marie Antoinette of Austria, Queen of France - Martyr: 230 years of Martyrdom

The Royal Abbey and Basilica of Saint-Denis was filled with faithful today for the Traditional Mass of Requiem for the soul of Queen Marie Antoinette, martyr, murdered by the French Republic on this day exactly 230 years ago:

A faithful wife.
A loving mother.
A devout and pious Catholic.
Destroyed by the satanic revolution: but her soul was God's and His alone.
