Short biography
Baroness Caroline [or Karoline] Philippine de la Motte-Fouqué, née von Briest, was born into a Prussian landowner family. She was educated at home by a French governess. She was married first to an army officer, but this union was a failure due to his gambling addiction; he committed suicide. In 1803, she married the German author Friedrich de la Motte-Fouqué and the couple had several children. Madame de la Motte-Fouqué produced more than 100 works, including 20 novels, over 60 stories, a number of poems and reviews, and some 20 nonfiction pieces of social, and cultural importance aimed primarily at women.
