Genevieve de Vaucresson

Page history last edited by Kari Little-McKinney 3 years, 4 months ago

Maitresse Genevieve Chastisse de Vaucresson
is a 16th century French woman, the daughter of a farmer with properties on the outskirts of Paris.   Genevieve spent time in Italy where she was 'adopted' by and became friends with a group of ladies from the city once known as Constantinople, who in sharing the foods and dances of their lands gave her a love for all things eastern.  Later, in 1569, her path took her to England where she found she could make a living as a seamstress to the noble ladies of the Queen's court. Later, missing the "adventure thing", she absconded once again to Istanbul, and was not long after over the border into Northern India and has since fallen in with a tribe of Rajasthani swordswomen where she occasionally goes about disguised as a man in order to get to play with sharp objects.

 

In the SCA context: Mme Genevieve is a seamstress, known previously as the merchant "The Gilded Lily", and is a member of the Order of the Laurel for Elizabethan costuming. Interests within SCA include also: Middle Eastern Dance, English Country Dance, Brewing, calligraphy and Illumination. She has been a member since 1980 and is currently enjoying her first extended stint of NOT being an officer of some sort or other.  shire exchequer....
