The Politician   (Based on research)

          She wanted to be a politician in the 1700's, but was prevented not only by her complete lack of education, but also the fact that no women had preceded her into politics, except Joan of Arc.  Even though she couldn't read, she conducted a literary salon for men only, because those were the only people publishers, who were also men, would publish.  Clandestinely, she had several children,  because at the time it was considered socially unacceptable to have a baby.   She always remained single.
