Anne Louise Germaine de Staël (1776-1817) was an author and political figure of world-wide historical importance during the years of the French Directory and Empire. She opposed Napoleon and was exiled from Paris in 1803, retiring to Coppet on Lake Geneva, where she continued her career as an author--culminating in her best-known work, De l'Allemagne (1810). The novel Corinne appeared in 1807.
