Madame de Stael *

a.k.a. Anne Louise Germaine (nee) Necker de Stael-Holstein

Author Code: FMDS

Born: Apr. 22, 1766 - Paris, France

Died: Jul. 14, 1817 - Paris, France

The daughter of Jacques Necker, Director of Finance under Louis XVI, Anne was a precocious child with a keen intellect and began writing at an early age. She married Baron Erik Magnus Stael von Holstein in 1786. In 1788, she published Lettres sur les ouvrages et le caractere de J. J. Rousseau, a work on Rousseau which brought her prominence as a writer. She is said to have numbered many prominent men among her lovers, including Talleyrand and Louis de Narbonne. She was involved in various power struggles and intrigues during the French Revolution and in 1793, fled to England and then to Switzerland. She returned to Paris at the end of the Reign of Terror in 1794, but was exiled by Napoleon in 1795. In 1802, she published the very popular Delphine, which again earned her exile by Napoleon in 1803. In 1807, she published Corinne, which was an instant success. She traveled to Germany and interviewed Goethe, Schiller, Fichte and others and in 1810 published De l'Allemagne, a description of the German people. From 1811 until Waterloo in 1814, she traveled extensively through Russia, Finland, Sweden and England where she was warmly received. She then returned to Paris where she died of a stroke in 1817. Her works include Sophie (1790), Jane Grey (1790), A Treatise on the Influence of the Passions upon the Happiness of Individuals and Nations (1796), A Treatise of Ancient and Modern Literature (1800), Reflections on Suicide (1813) and her autobiographical Ten Years' Exile published posthumously in 1821.
