a French pianist and composer. She was born into an aristocratic family and studied piano with Nicolas Joseph Hüllmandel and Jan Ladislav Dussek. She married the Marquis de Montgeroult who died as an Austrian prisoner in 1793. After her husband's death, de Montgeroult took a position at the new Paris Conservatoire in 1795, where she taught for two years. Afterward she published two volumes of music.
