Short biography
Célestine Marie Amélie de Ségur was the daughter of Philippe-Paul, comte de Ségur, a French general and historian, and his wife Marie Françoise Célestine Gabrielle de Vintmille du Luc. She was raised in Paris, where her parents were members of the political and intellectual elite. In 1851, she married Louis Albert Marie de la Forest, comte d'Armaillé and the couple split their time between Anjou, Mayenne and Paris. The comtesse d'Armaillé earned a fair literary reputation with her historical studies of famous French noblewomen, including the comtesse d'Egmont Pignatelli, daughter of Marshal Richelieu; Queen Marie Leczinska, wife of King Louis XV; Catherine de Bourbon, sister of King Henri IV; Marie Antoinette and her daughter Marie-Thérèse; Madame Elisabeth, sister of King Louis XVI; and Désirée Clary, Queen of Sweden. The comtesse d'Armaillé also was an ancestor of Louis de Broglie, a Nobel Prize winner in physics in 1929.
