Marie-Therese recalled that the King and Queen continued to be threatened in front of their children.

Her brother would cry and tremble when he heard the jailers describe the ways in which they were going to torture and kill the King.

Marie-Therese wrote that her father would respond with 'calm and contemptuous silence'.

Her mother had always maintained her dignity and poise in front of the guards, but on September 2, a three-day massacre began in the city that broke the Queen's resolve.
