Yolande Martine Gabrielle de Polastron, Duchesse de Polignac (8 September 1749 – 9 December 1793) was a French duchess and the favourite of Marie Antoinette, whom she first met when she was presented at the Palace of Versailles in 1775, the year after Marie Antoinette became the Queen of France. She was considered one of the great beauties of pre-Revolutionary high society, but her extravagance and exclusivity earned her many enemies.
