Madame de Stael
Madame Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein
Utterly fashionable Parisian intellectual Mme de Staël was forced out of France by the Revolution and went to live as an emigrée at her estate in Geneva.
Later, hounded by Napoleon’s police, she fled to Russia and then to England, where she wrote an account of her adventures, published as Dix années d'exil, and a history of the revolutionary era, Considérations sur les principaux événements de la Révolution française. (Next)
