Juliette Récamier - Wikipedia
Seller Image. Tomes 1 et 2. The name "Juliette" came about as a diminutive of "Jullie". In relaying the news to a friend of his impending marriage to Juliette, Jacques wrote:. I am not in love with her, but I feel for her a genuine and tender attachment which convinces me that this interesting creature will be a partner who will ensure the happiness of my whole life and, judging by my own desire to ensure her happiness, of which I can see she is absolutely convinced, I have no doubt that the benefit will be reciprocal She possesses germs of virtue and principle such as are seldom seen so highly developed at so early an age; she is tender-hearted, affectionate, charitable and kind, beloved in her home-circle and by all who know her.
A rumour arose that her husband was, in fact, her natural father who married her to make her his heir.
Although many biographers have given credence to this theory, it is unproven,  and discounted by several historians. It may be said that my feelings for the daughter arise out of those I have had for her mother; but all those who frequent the house are well aware that what took me there was pure friendship, a friendship which had grown out of the possibly somewhat warmer feeling I may have had in the earlier days of our acquaintance.
Madame Récamier, the "dame au sofa"
At present, having reached an age when all other pretensions are past, she only wishes to educate her child, and make her a virtuous and good woman. Chateaubriand was a constant visitor of her salon and, in a manner, master of the house. There she was on exceedingly good terms with Joachim Murat and his wife Caroline Bonaparte , who were then intriguing with the Bourbons. If she had any genuine affection, it seems to have been for the baron de Barante , whom she met at Coppet.
She was the subject of two silent films. Portrait by Jean-Baptiste Augustin From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
