Podcast Episode 3: Madame Tussaud and her Chamber of Horrors

madame-tussaud

Welcome to the 3rd episode of The Queen is Not Amused. In this episode, we briefly explore the life of Marie Grosholtz, who would one day become the famous Madame Tussaud.

Born fatherless, Marie’s story might have ended up a brief tale of poverty and death. Instead, she was able to sail the tumultuous tide of revolution in France and eventually end up one of the most famous—and successful—businesswomen in the world.

    Having seen Madame Tussaud’s London wax museum, I have to say that the display of the sleeping woman was much creepier than anything in the Chamber of Horrors. Wax figures should not breathe. {shudder}

      Thanks for your comment, Joan. Yes, that figure is a little unsettling, isn’t it? I would have loved it if Madame Tussaud’s had put up a diagram of exactly how the mechanism worked!
