According to legend Maine Coons are descendants of Marie Antoinette' cats. The story goes was that the Antoinette planed to come to America to escape execution during the French revolution. She shipped some of her most prized belongings including 6 long haired cats to the new world but was unable to escape France to avoid her date with the Guillotine. After the former Queen of France was executed the story goes that her cats were released and managed to survive and mate with feral cats leading to the cats we know as Maine Coons.
