George Sand
b. 7-1-1804; France
d. 6-8-1876

George Sand was the pseudonym of the French novelist and feminist Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin, Baroness Dudevant. She began wearing men's clothing because they wore longer and were less expensive than an aristocrat's dress, and enabled her to gain access to places in Paris that might have been denied to a woman of her social standing. She was a companion to Frederic Chopin, friends with Franz Liszt, Gustave Flaubert, and actress Marie Dorval.
