Jeanne Louise Henriette Campan established a school at Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 1794. The school prospered and was patronized by Hortense de Beauharnais. Hortense's influence led to the appointment of Madame Campan as superintendent of the academy founded by Napoleon at Ecouen of the orphaned daughters of his Legion d'honneur in 1807.

I wonder if the first name was a prerequisite? "Janes and Annes need not apply..."

In 1592 Walter Raleigh was recalled from one of his expeditions by Queen Elizabeth I after it was discovered that he had married one of his ladies-in-waiting, Elizabeth Throckmorton, in 1591. It was strictly forbidden for ladies-in-waiting to marry without the Queen's consent. Elizabeth Throckmorton was dismissed.

Mary Seton was the only one of the Four Marys who did not get married. She was a distinguished hairdresser. Mary remained in Queen Mary's service, even during the Queen of Scotland's many years of captivity in England, and was not paid.

That sounds far worse than it probably was. Women in those times had precious little authority over their own assets and estate and were mostly provided for by men (husbands, fathers or even brothers) and family. Since several of those ladies in waiting did not have families (as in husbands and children) who could either provide for them, but who would also inherit any fortune left by the women, the court providing for each and every need (clothes, food and lodging) for life was most likely quite enough for those ladies. They did not need money to spend on anything else.
Not condoning this system, merely trying to explain a very different time and mindset.

She is the only none Habsburg being buried in the Kapuzinergruft, because she was of such importance to MT. Maria Theresia used to refer to her as Füchsin (vixen).
