    • found: Wikipedia, Nov. 10, 2014 (Marie-Jeanne Phlippon Roland, better known simply as Madame Roland; birth name: Marie-Jeanne Phlippon; born 17 March 1754 in Paris; died 8 November 1793; together with her husband Jean-Marie Roland de la Platière, a supporter of the French Revolution and influential member of the Girondist faction. She fell out of favour during the Reign of Terror and died on the guillotine. She collaborated on a number of M. Roland's works: the Dictionnaire des Manufactures, Arts et Métiers, and a contribution to Panchoucke's Encyclopedie Methodique, in particular. Her most significant influence flowed through her husband's political writings. Thus, with him and through him, she proved both powerful and influential in the era of the French Revolution; however, some of the most interesting days of Madame Roland's life took place in prison as she struggled with her concept of a woman's place in the nation of France after having been forced to lurk in the shadows to gain her own influence over the nation. She proved women to be valuable active partners to political success. After Madame Roland helped her husband escape Paris, she accepted her fate of death on the guillotine as the only way to clear her name and reputation. Refusing to compromise her principles and remaining true to the ideals of Rousseau, Voltaire, and Plutarch, she died as a citizen of the republic, not a subject of the monarchy. After the revolution, her memoirs were published in 1795, so that Madame Roland continued to influence the formation of the French republic)
