Original- (Eamv) Emilie’s- (Eamv²)
Emilie once dressed as a man in order to be included in an intellectual conversation.
Emilie learned Latin, German, Italian and some Spanish
Emilie first met her late husband, Voltaire,
as a young child!!
Emilie helped her late husband and teacher, Voltaire, write his book “Elements of the Philosophy of Newton,” which he published after her death.
Emilie’s mother was not very proud of her, in the sense that she did not behave like a young lady was “supposed to.”
In conclusion, Emilie lived a fulfilling life the way she wanted to. She wasn’t the typical young woman of France, but her scientific achievements make up for that. If she had not lived such a short life, she probably would have made more shocking discoveries that would have fueled the minds of scientists that followed her work.
