MUFFAT (MAMAN), wife of General Muffat de Beuville, who was created
Comte by Napoleon I. She was an insufferable old woman, who was always
hand-in-glove with the priests, and had an authoritative manner, which
bent every one to her will. Her daughter-in-law, Comtesse Sabine, was
entirely under her dominion, and was forced by her to lead an almost
cloistered existence. Nana.
