In case you thought Marie Antoinette's life couldn't have been any more dramatic, a new book claims her husband King Louis XVI was not the father of two of her four children.
In the book, titled "I Love You Madly – Marie-Antoinette and Count Fersen: The Secret Letters," historian Evelyn Farr compiled a set of letters between Marie Antoinette and Swedish count and diplomat, Axel von Fersen.
Farr said in an interview with People the two used secret codes and invisible ink to write love letters to each other throughout their 20-year affair.
