Christine de Pizan


About the Author

Christine de Pizan (c. 1365–1429) was born in Venice but grew up at the court of Charles V of France. After the deaths of the king, her father, and her husband, she was left to provide for her three children, her mother, and her niece, and thus turned to writing.
