Madame Campan was Marie Antoinette's Mistress of the Bedchamber.  She was well-educated and intelligent and had been a reader to Louis XVI's aunts.  Her position at Court placed her such that her memoir is a huge source of inside information.  From it come many of the well-known anecdotes of the time.
