Campan, Jean Louise Henriette, was born in 1752, at Paris. She won the favour of Queen Marie Antoinette, whom, as lady of the bedchamber, she served with touching fidelity. After the sacking of the Tuileries she was thrown upon her own resources. To support herself and her invalid husband she opened a boarding school at Saint Germain. She is remembered mainly for her writings, Memoires sur la Vie privee de la Reine Marie Antoinette, Journal Anecdotique, and her correspondence with Queen Hortense.
