When Madame Élisabeth was commanded to swear loyalty to the new rule and hatred towards the royal family this was her response:

"To the first I willing submit. To the second, how can I accede? There is nothing of which I can accuse the Royal family. To hate them is against my nature. They are my Sovereigns. They are my friends and relations. I have served them for many years, and never have I found reason for the slightest complaint!"

  1. Hi, I'm a little confuse about this quote. I'm sure I've read from few articles that this quote was said by Princesse de Lamballe?
