About Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand

Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand (1772–1843) was a French professional fortune-teller, active for more than 40 years and of considerable fame during the Napoleonic era. Lenormand claimed to have given cartomantic advice to many famous persons, among them leaders of the French revolution (Marat, Robespierre and St-Just), Empress Josephine and Czar Alexander. In 1814 Lenormand started a second literary career and published many texts, causing many public controversies. Lenormand was imprisoned more than once, though never for very long. In France Lenormand is considered the greatest cartomancer of all time, highly influential on the wave of French cartomancy that began in the late 18th century.
