At age 19 she married into d’Étiolles family, which was an obvious marriage of convenience. She had two children with her husband Charles-Guillaume Le Normant, but both of them died in childhood. Antoinette soon founded her own salon which became very popular in Parisian circles and which was attended by many intellectuals, such as Voltaire, with whom she became close friends.

"They envisioned her having this role when she was just a bourgeois young girl living in Paris, and they made it happen," explains Columbia University art historian Susan Wager.

There are varied accounts of this song and where it was sung. It was mainly sung as a rallying cry or as entertainment among a group of pro-revolutionaries. It was also used as an insult to those who did not support the French Revolution. Popular punishment was to make them "sing and dance the Carmagnole", which could be done to marquises, dames, princes, monks, bishops, archbishops, cardinals and the like. [5] La Carmagnole has also been documented as a rallying cry in battle. At the battle of Jemappes on 6 November 1792 it is written that, "the sans-culottes in the army rushed the enemy singing " La Marseillaise " and "La Carmagnole." It was a great republican victory, and all of Belgium fell to the revolutionary armies." [6]
