Let's remember that the "Let them eat cake" thing never happened. And, whether she cared or not as it was what queens did, marie antoinette gave charitably to the common people.

I know this is a bit late but this is something I've always wondered about traditional European monarchies of old. Did the not ever see fit to give the heirs or "heir-apparent"(s) to said thrones and countries some formal education system or atleast a group of (ideally loyal) 'royal tutors' so as to train them (crown princes and or even crown princesses) in the art of statesmenship and other various practical skills related to y'know...actually knowing how run a government or society? Now I know things don't always go according to plan what with the potential for a chosen heir to a monarchy might well y'know...die before they could inherit the position. I guess that's what regencys are for anyway, right, still you'd think the royal families of these various kingdoms would have the foresight to have their children or heirs better prepared to take over once the time had come for them to succeed.
It's not like EVERY monarch is going to be a great one or even a notable one but at least it might bring better, lasting stability to a country if atleast everyone of those rulers received a bare minimum education on governance and economics. Even if they intended to preserve some old standing social hierarchy, perhaps some of these more, traditionalists, conservative kings and queen would realize from their upbringing in "formalized royal grooming" (teach them how to run a state) that maybe some economic and social reforms are a necessary thing in order to adapt to changes and prepared for dealing with inevitable problems. Ironically if such monarchies were to have adapted to change and saw fit to better train up their successors (if there wasn't any such training) perhaps today we would still have quite a few monarchies that still held a substantial amount of real power and authority beyond a mere symbolic position.

That's not to say I support absolute monarchies or that I don't think any of these old monarchies could have survived into our times without eventually relinquishing some of their powers to some forms of indirect quasi-democracies. Only that these monarchs might have still retained a lot of or some of their powers and still have a notable say in governing today.

But anyway my main point was that I've always found it strange how monarchs never seemed too concerned with their heirs being even 'qualified' to take over governance. What's the story on that? Were their children just expected to learn on the fly once they ascended the throne about how to be a good ruler? (from their society's perspective that is..)
