Jeanne Louise Henriette Campan (1752–1822)

Campan, Jeanne Louise Henriette (ko-po‘). A French writer of memoirs, recollections, and essays on education; born (Genest) in Paris, Oct. 6, 1752; died at Mantes, May 16, 1822. Her ‘Memoirs of the Private Life of Marie Antoinette’ were based upon personal knowledge, obtained in the capacity of lady-in-waiting; the ‘Correspondence with Queen Hortense’ is a revelation of character of no small value; but the ‘Treatise on Education’ is unimportant.
