I always looked at the Queen of Hearts as a cruel ruler, because she really was. Even from the time I was little watching the movie that originated from this book, I never liked her. Then last year in social studies, we learned a little bit about Marie Antoinette and her values. I though it was more than fitting to compare her to the Queen of Hearts. Marie Antoinette had a saying, "Let them eat cake." I think that resembles The Queen of Hearts saying, "Off with their heads."
