    (July 1, 1804-June 8, 1876)
    Born in Paris, France
    Birth name was Aurore Dupin
    Wrote 90 novels including 'Indiana' (1831), 'Mauprat' (1837), 'Le Compagnon du Tour de France' (1840), 'Consuelo' (1843) and 'Le Meunier d'Angibault' (1845)
    She scandalized society by wearing men's clothes and smoking cigars.
    Most of her lovers were significantly younger men.
    She was a feminist who hid behind a male pseudonym.
    Charles Baudelaire wrote, 'Her ideas on morals have the same depth of judgment and delicacy of feeling as those of janitresses and kept women.'
    Her mother left her to be raised by her grandmother only to reappear after the grandmother's death to try to claim the estate that had been left to Sand.
    She called herself 'the Spartacus of women's slavery.'
    She may have had a lesbian affair with an actress.
    Novelist Ivan Turgenev said, 'What a brave man she was, and what a good woman.'
