According to the memoirs of the Prince de Ligne, the Emperor [Joseph II] was astonished that considering the ‘surroundings of the Queen and the air of license which reigned at the Court, she had preserved her virtue. Her tact impressed him as much as her majesty. It was as impossible to forget it as to forget himself. In her presence too much freedom [of behavior] could not be risked, nor too naughty a story be told.’
—Marie Antoinette by Dorothy Moulton Mayer
