Relations with Marie Antoinette
In 1770, the Countess de Noaille was the first state lady of the new crown princess , the Dauphin of Marie Antoinette , after her arrival in France. The Countess de Noaille met with Marie Antoinette at the border, where she was part of the French environment, and was appointed responsible for her court and conduct at Versailles. Marie Antoinette did not love her  for her stiffness and scrupulous adherence to etiquette. After becoming the queen in 1774 , Marie Antoinette resigned her first stats lady, and she became part of the noble opposition, grouped around the king’s aunts, Mesdames , in Bellevue . 
The Countess de Noaille and her husband Philippe were guillotined on June 27, 1794 , during the French Revolution . Many of the countess's relatives met an equally tragic end. On July 22, 1794 , the widow, daughter-in-law (Viscountess de Noaille), and granddaughter of brother Philippe Louis, 4th Duke de Noaille ( Duchess de Noaille), were also guillotined. Louis’s other granddaughter, Adrienne, the wife of the Marquis de Lafayette , was saved by the intervention of the US ambassador to France, James Monroe . [four]
