About Who???

Can you guess who this description is about?

A lady whom was highly fashionable, -the height of fashion- (her name is being with held!) this is her account of how both her and her husbands fortunes were lost:
(Their fortunes were lost through...) "His unbridled passion for women of bad morals, joined to his fondness for gambling."

Oh for shame! Who is this man of idle pleasures and bad luck at cards?


  1. well, I have dropped some subtle hints.....I did not want to paint a clear picture of who it could be! that takes out the fun!

  2. Hmmm, this is a long shot but...Monsieur LeBrun?

  3. Heather! you got it right! Mdm Vigee LeBrun said that about her husband. She ended up leaving him! good job miss!
