    Above is pictured a medallion made to commemorate the August Decrees, begun on the night of 4 August 1789. Deputies from the First and Second estates (clergy and nobility) decreed and voted to renounce and abolish their privileges. These privileges were granted to members of the first two estates revolving mainly around tax exemptions and feudal rights.

    I put Chevalier d’Eon de Beaumont’s portrait through the MyHeritage Animation. Honestly, her smile warms my heart. Thankfully she has a soft, calm expression so it didn’t turn out creepy!
