1702 The Queen's Necklace, by Frances Mossiker (read 27 Mar 1982) This is a 1961 book. It was interesting, but not scholarly enough. The author tells the story of the Necklace by the accounts of the persons concerned. She translated the briefs and memoirs and simply strings the excerpts together. Her translations use modern words and in general seek to popularize the accounts. But it was all interesting. One must conclude Countess de la Mitte-Valois simply duped Cardinal Rohan, and that Marie Antoinette had nothing to do with it. At least, I do. The contract for the necklace was signed Jan 29, 1785. Cardinal Rohan was arrested Aug 15, 1785. Judgment was pronounced May 31, 1786. Cardinal Rohan was acquitted by a vote of 26 to 23. Countess de la Motte-Valois was found guilty by unanimous vote, and was branded and imprisoned. She escaped to England in 1787. Cardinal Rohan died in 1803. ( )
