While many listeners are familiar with Marie Antoinette's life, few will be aware of the story of her sister, Maria Carolina Charlotte. Through this polished audio presentation, listeners can learn about this formidable monarch, the Queen of Naples and the Kingdoms of the Two Sicilies. Charlotte was raised by her redoubtable mother, Empress Maria Theresa of Austria-Hungary, and taught that her role was to reign as an enlightened absolute ruler. Listeners follow the fictionalized first-person account of her life, which is narrated by Marissa Calin. There is a hint of an Austrian accent in Charlotte's words, and the accents of Spanish courtiers, English allies, and French enemies are well delivered. This audiobook is a good mix of historical fact and fast- paced fiction. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
