Jeanne Louise Henriette Campan

Author Code: FJLC

Born: Oct. 6, 1752 - Paris, France

Died: Mar. 16, 1822 - Mentes, France

The daughter of a foreign office clerk, Campan was well-educated, multi-lingual and an accomplished young woman when she became lady in waiting to Marie Antoinette in 1770. In 1786 she was appointed lady of the bedchamber. During the storming of the Tuileries in 1792, she was forced to flee to the countryside. She managed to survive the Terror and established a school at St. Germain which was very successful. She was appointed superintendent of the Ecouen Academy in 1807. The academy had been established by Napoleon to educate the daughters and sisters of the Legion of Honor. The academy was closed at the restoration of the Bourbons in 1814 and Campan retired to Mentes. She published The Memoirs of the Court of Marie Antoinette in 1792 and is the definitive work on the subject. She also produced The Education of Girls during her time at the academy.
