Marie Tussaud, a character rooted in the 18th revolutionary century, had a front row seat at two revolutions: a political revolution in France and the Industrial Revolution in Britain. Following in her footsteps, revisit the history of wax portraiture and popular entertainment in full bloom in the early 19th century when Great Britain was undergoing an unprecedented industrial and economic boom. Marie Tussaud was a talented wax artist, as well as an entrepreneur, but also a marketing pioneer. She toured Ireland, Scotland and England with a travelling museum, before ending her life in London at the head of a colossal empire, the Madame Tussaud's wax museum. How did a woman survive such dangerous times, and rise to the status of national treasure in a country whose language she could barely master?
