Michele in Marie Antoinette's Boudoir at Fontainebleau

It hasn't been covered in my Rosetta Stone lessons (eight months and I know almost nothing), but, according to dictionary.com, "boudoir" means, in French, literally, "room for sulking in" from the verb "bouder" - to sulk.  In reality, it's the woman's bedroom or her personal space in which to relax, and, often, to dress - or in Marie Antoinette's case, to be dressed.
