, APRIL 8, 1932 / ~~-——' ' til mi' QI I'joz ' * Revolution Kept this Little Boy From.Throne of France 4LYTHfcYILLE. (ARK.MMURIER NEWS The "Lost Dauphtc," BV ALICE ROME Written for NEA Service If ever a small boy had beautiful grounds to play In It was thp child of today's picture. In the maguificJont gardens of Versailles and the mere intimnte ones of the Trianon life seemed a gay and happy thing. He was (he son of King Louis XVI of France and the beautiful Queen Marie Antoinette. When he was five years old the luxurious pastimes and the care-free romp- ings with his mother underwent a change. Things began to happen which contused him. It is tad but true that (he sins of (he lathers arc visited too often upon Ihe children. This time it was the sins of thc grandfather, for thc little boy's father Louis XVI and his family had to pay for the selfishness and extravagance of Louis XV. A Mysterious Trip One njBht the little Dauphihj which was Ihe title given to' ihc' heir-to thc French throne, was hustled through secret corridors with his sister, his mother, father and aunt into a carriage and driven hurriedly toivard thc border. -He was so little he thought at first it was all a great and thrill- Ing adventure until at Varennes they, were slopped by none too polite men and sent back under escort to Paris and he realized they had been trying to escape some ' great danger. Then came that awful day when th e mob broke into th c Tuilerics and the Kin? and family barely had tinio lo escape and deliver themselves for protection to the Assembly. Was Brutally Treated The little Dauphin who had never received anything but kindness and courtesy couldn't understand tho.se lough and threatening men. Why did. they put his kind father and his lovely mother and his little sister and himself in prison? For five months (hey remained in Thc Temple treated none tco well and then one day—the day France was declared a Republic—his father v,as taken nway and executed. No one tried to comfort or calm this poor littic boy and his sisier. When liis beautiful mother whose hair had turned white during thc . agonizing experiences of the Ter rcr. was led away lo bo i;iii!]otin C'.! the little boy, who was really King of France, was jeered nnd taunted and beaten by his cruel jailor. A bruital Jacobin shoemaker named Simon wns given thc custody of this delicately reared child, who died at th c age of ten of hunger, neglect and abuse. His Fate Wisuut-d There arc many people who think that he escaped nnd today there are stories about the Lost Dauphin which make ns want to believe that thc little Prince found release from his misery other than death. Several men have insisted that they were thc son of Louis XVI and among the talcs there !« one that the child escaped and came lo America. Thc artist who painted the portrait of the Dauphin was a prot- ege of Marie Antoinette. Louis who became the Dauphin in 1783 at the death of his brother had been irainictj by many distinguished artists. But Kuchnrski' worked mostly in pastel and was very ranch th e vogue. He was a Polish oristocr.it nnd hod been reared at the court of the last King of 1"i- Ifind. He was a very groat gentleman with i»llshcrl manners and a truly kind heart. This he proved bv his devotion lo the Queen anil the Dauphin. On the terrible d.iy •vhen the mob broke Into the lull- lerles, Kuchnrskl was painting Marie Antoinette and he succeeded in diverting the rabble's attention to the portrait likeness while the Queen escaped, when they taw the face of thc Queen they haled they wreaked their ven- gc.ince on the painted likeness. Later Kucharskl painted Marie /Intoinctte as * widow in the Tem- ile and he copied it many times in '.he days of his adversity. His por- .rait of the Dauphin, made in pastel, is in the I'etit Trianon today, '.he spot beloved of the Queen and tier children. Among the artist's cherished possessions up to the ime of his death in 1829 were the ittle grey moire vest, the cordon i!eu, th e decoration of the Holy Spirit whlrh the Daupln wore In •he Temple before he fell inlo thc hands of Simon. Painted Great People When Ii e was an old, old man. liis fortune gone, Kucharski used :a make sketches of his llltle lost friend the Dauphin and reproduced faithfully the costume he had conserved. At the height of his fame he had painted portraits of great jicople among them Catharine of Russia. He was popular a man and as an arlist and gave distinction to all of his portraits.. , : The. child In next week's paint- ins; would never have been born if thc iittle Dauphin had become King of France, for he is the son of Napoleon Bonaparte, whose star rose from the Revolution, and the daughter of an Emperor.
