Born in Paris. Adam Thorpe has written "Conscious of her physical plainness but 'irresistibly seductive' in conversation, her salons were the focal point for pre-revolutionary reform, and eventually became the bane of Napoleon's rule." She escaped Napoleon by temporary exile to Russia and England. She believed that "a society's treatment of its female citizens was the measure of its civilisation". Died at home in Paris.
