As Marie Antoinette was preparing for her execution, she put on a plain white dress, because it is the color the widowed queens of France wore. Despite the insults of the crowd on her way to the place of execution, she remained still. Her body was later thrown into an unmarked grave in the Madeleine cemetery.
