                                       sold   Madame de Pompadour
Madame du Pompadour was born Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson. Her father was a steward to the Paris brothers who ran the economy of France. Though her parents were not of the noble class, Jeanne-Antoinette was raised to be the wife of a wealthy man. She was extremely talented and could act, dance, sing, and play the clavichord. Her marriage brought her out into society and she became well known as a star of the Paris salons. Voltaire met her in the homes of friends and also attended her salon. He stated that she was "well brought up, amiable, good, charming and talented."

In 1744, Jeanne-Annette caught the eye of the King Louis XV and became his mistress. She divorced her husband and was awarded the title Marquise de Pompadour. Louis XV had a tendency to always be bored and Madame de Pompadour knew how to keep him entertained. She had a small theater built at Versailles and staged plays just for him.
