Character description

Perenelle Flamel (died 1397) was the wife of the famous 14th-century scribe Nicolas Flamel. She was a generous benefactor who invested this wealth in churches and hostels, and commissioned religious sculptures. Due to legends which first appeared in the seventeenth century, she has since developed a false reputation as a successful alchemist. Perenelle, like her husband, has had a street in Paris, France named after her, Rue Pernelle.

The spelling of her name varies and is sometimes given as Perrenelle, Petronelle or Pernelle. [Wikipedia]
