Who is/was Margaux?

The 21st century's ultimate travel babe with more moxie than your travel agent and a penchant for adventure? A turn-of-the-century savvy traveler with one of the most impressive networks around. A late 18th century socialite? An early 19th century adventurer? An artiste? A baroness? It’s not a simple question to answer. Instead we’re collecting a collage of excerpts from those who claim to have known or known of Margaux. We will be showcasing them soon in e-Marginalia to celebrate the legendary woman for whom this website is named. Feel free to send us your own reflections.
