A talk by Richard Mawrey QC.

In 1911, Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain published a book entitled An Adventure under the names of “Elizabeth Morison” and “Frances Lamont”. Their book describes a visit they made to the Petit Trianon, a small château in the grounds of the Palace of Versailles where they claimed to have seen the gardens as they had been in the late eighteenth century as well as ghosts, including Marie Antoinette and others. Their story caused a sensation and was subject to much ridicule.

£14 for guests.
