TROUCHE (MADAME OLYMPE), wife of the preceding, and sister of Abbe
Faujas. She accompanied her husband to Plassans, and contributed largely
to the ruin of the Mouret family. Utterly heartless, she stopped at
nothing, robbing Madame Mouret of money, clothing, everything that came
within her power. Nemesis came with the return of Francois Mouret, who
set fire to his house, causing the death of Madame Trouche as well as
that of her husband. La Conquete de Plassans.
