Well...least he wasn't beheaded...
Well, we wouldn't want to take extreme measures! ;)
Marie Antoinette? By a lot of accounts, yes. Generally she's portrayed by attractive women in film/tv versions as well. *shrug*
Never ever whistle at a Queen. lol.
Clearly it'll get ya in trouble. :)
ummm, damn. i will check to see who i am whistling at from now on.
ha, if that were true today, construction workers would all be in prison! I wonder if queen elizabeth follows that principle too.
lol, I doubt it. ;) She probably couldn't hear them anyway..
Oooh, that was mean. :)
And yes, Construction workers'd be in a lot of trouble. :) As would most teenage boys.
Wow...so if I whistle at a King would I go to jail too? How about if I yell "hubba hubba"?
lol! I don't know. I imagine a king might take being whistled at more gracefully then a queen.
Wow. :D Over-react much, did she?
I think so, assuming she was the one that decided the sentence. I wonder though if it wasn't more her advisors?
Consider this, the French revolution ended in 1799. That means that he spent 37 years in prison after Marie was separated from her head. He must not have been too sympathetic a character.
Or people forgot about him?
oh well now
that was nothing to lose her head about, was it?
How do they know he was whistling at her?
Mabey he was trying to call a horse and buggy cab or something. . .
Well, that's a risk you take when you're whistling in Paris, I guess. *grin*
Ooh! Let me know what you find! I think women are the bad guys often too. There's good people and bad people in the world, and I doubt gender has much to do with it. :)
Extreme arrestments were the thing back then. Like that poet that was confined to the Tower because the queen didn't want him to have another girlfriend...If I remember the names, I'll edit my post.
Was it Thomas Wyatt and Anne Boleyn?
Someone should look into that...sounds like a Lifetime movie. lol.
Secret Marriage: The Loves of Elizabeth I
lol. Generally British things surpass Lifetime Movies.
