Sophie de Bezancourt [or de Bazancourt] Loyré d'Arbouville, comtesse d'Arbouville, was born to a French family. At age 22, she married François d'Arbouville, a French general, and accompanied on some of his campaigns. When her health did not permit her to follow him to Africa, she returned Paris and presided over a salon in her home in the Place Vendôme frequented by writers and artists such as Prosper Mérimée and François-René de Chateaubriand. She become a close friend of the literary critic Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve, to whom she dedicated some of her work. Her poems, stories, and novels, including Marie Madeleine, Le médecin de village, Résignation, Une vie heureuse, and Une famille hollandaise, were mostly published anonymously during her lifetime. In the summer months, her salon moved with her to the countryside at Maisons-Lafitte or Champlâtreux. She died at age 39 in 1850 after a long illness.
