Theroigne de Mericourt

She was born at Marcourt (Prince-Bishopric of Liège) (from which comes the appellation "de Méricourt"), a small town in Luxembourg province, in modern Belgium. She is known both for her portrayal in the French Revolutionary press and for her subsequent mental breakdown and institutionalization. Early life[edit] She was born Anne-Josèphe Terwagne in Marcourt, Rendeux, to Pierre Terwagne (b. 1731) and Anne-Élisabeth Lahaye (1732–1767). Her mother died after giving birth to her third child, leaving Anne-Josèphe alone with her father and two brothers.

Between 1784 and 1789, she traveled between France, England, and Italy, pursuing her musical career.

Bakgrunn[rediger | rediger kilde] Mannings foreldre traff hverandre da faren tjenstgjorde for United States Navy som etterretningsanalytiker, stasjonert i Wales, hvor moren var fra. Da familien senere hadde flyttet til Oklahoma, arbeidet faren som IT-sjef for et bilutleieselskap, noe som medførte mye reisefravær, samtidig som moren hadde helseproblemer og utviklet alkoholisme. Dette førte til at Chelsea og hennes eldre søsken måtte klare seg selv for en stor del.[3] Manning var alltid liten av vekst til å være gutt, med en høyde på 1,57 m høy, og ble mobbet for dette.

Etter at foreldrene ble skilt, flyttet hun i november 2001 med moren til Haverfordwest i Wales, hvor hun hadde familie. Honoré de Balzac. Honoré de Balzac (/ˈbɔːlzæk, ˈbæl-/;[2] French: [ɔ.nɔ.ʁe d(ə) bal.zak], born Honoré Balzac,[1] 20 May 1799 – 18 August 1850) was a French novelist and playwright.

Honoré de Balzac

The novel sequence La Comédie Humaine, which presents a panorama of post-Napoleonic French life, is generally viewed as his magnum opus. Owing to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature.[3] He is renowned for his multi-faceted characters; even his lesser characters are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human. Inanimate objects are imbued with character as well; the city of Paris, a backdrop for much of his writing, takes on many human qualities. His writing influenced many famous writers, including the novelists Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, Jack Kerouac and Henry James, as well as important philosophers such as Friedrich Engels.
