George Sand was born ArmandineAurore Lucille Dupin in Paris on July 1, 1804. On her father's side she was related to a line of kings and to the Maréchal de Saxe

Born and when she died

Family siblings children and spouses

The scholars I consulted in preparing my review all agree that Sand's first child, Maurice, was fathered by her husband, CasimirDudevant, but her second (and last), Solange, was most likely fathered by her lover Stephane de Grandsagne.

Where did gorge sand live

  • Sand moved to Paris and publicly showcased her preference of wearing men’s clothing, although she continued to dress as a woman for social occasions.

Important events

After arriving in Paris, Sand started to write for Le Figaro, contributing Revue des DeuxMondes and La Republique and she was co-editor of Revue Indepandante. During this time in Paris, Sand would begin to associate with many artists, poets, philosophers and politicians. One such acquaintance, the write Jules Sandeau would become her lover, and they would co-write a novel, Rose Et Blanche, under the pseudonym Jules Sand. As their relationship began to dissolve, Sand wrote Indiana by herself and used the pseudonym George Sand. Indiana, a story about a naïve abused love starved woman led to widespread critical attention and immediate fame. Sand immediately followed it with two novels Valentine and Leilia.

George Sand was a prolific writer who expressed a deep concern for human problems and strong feminist ideals. Sand would write over seventy novels, twenty four plays, ten volumes of autobiography, essays, book reviews, political pamphlets, and an estimated forty- thousand letters of which twenty-two thousand have been printed. Sand was one of the most widely read novelists of her time and she inspired many authors such as Walt Whitman, but at the same time was denounced by the Vatican which repeatedly put her novels on the list that no good Catholic should read. George Sand died on June 8, 1876 from intestinal cancer at her family’s estate at Nohant surrounded by her children and grandchildren.
