15991678, Jan 16
a French writer, was the daughter of Gilles de Souvré, marquis de Courtenvaux, tutor of Louis XIII, and marshal of France. In 1614 she married Philippe Emmanuel de Laval, marquis de Sablé, who died in 1640, leaving her in somewhat straitened circumstances. With her friend the comtesse de Saint Maure she took rooms in the Place Royale, Paris, and established a literary salon. The class of literature, of which the Maximes of La Rochefoucauld is one of the best-known example, was originated here. The Maximes of the marquise de Sablé were in fact composed before those of La Rochefoucauld, though not published till after her death.
