Once upon a time
Françoise d’Aubigné, Marquise de Maintenon was the second wife of Louis XIV, king of France.
She was known during her first marriage as Madame Scarron, and subsequently as Madame de Maintenon.
Her marriage to the king was never officially announced or admitted, though she was very influential
at court. She started a school for girls from poorer noble families.
