"Moberly-Jourdain incident" Versailles Favorite Tip by ealgisi

Versailles General: 97 reviews and 187 photos


Favorite thing: Now, this is part of the history, something that apparently really happened.

On August 10 1901, in the gardens of the Petit Trianon, two female academics, Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain, both from educated backgrounds, experienced a time slip, and saw Marie Antoniette and other people from the same perios.
After some time, they published their work in a book called An Adventure.
