About Madame de Remusat

Claire Elisabeth Jeanne Gravier de Vergennes de Remusat (5 January 1780 - 16 December 1821) was a French woman of letters. She married at sixteen, and was attached to the Empress Josephine as dame du palais in 1802. Talleyrand was among her admirers, and she was generally regarded as a woman of great intellectual capacity and personal grace. After her death, her Essai sur l'education des femmes, was published and received academic approval, but it was not until her grandson, Paul de Remusat, published her Memoires (3 vols., Paris, 1879-80), which followed by some correspondence with her son (2 vols., 1881), that justice could be done to her literary talent. Claire's memoirs threw light not only on the Napoleonic court, but also on the youth and education of her son Charles de Remusat. He developed political views more liberal than those of his parents."show more
