Émilie du Châtelet - Set for only GBP £0.79
Born in Paris on December 17, 1706, Gabrielle Émilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil was very passionate about science. She was encouraged by her father, the Baron de Breteuil: impressed by the intelligence of his daughter, he offers his best tutors to perfect her education. This is a rare privilege for a young woman of the eighteenth century, even in good society, and this gives the young Emilie a strong intellectual background.
