Random Quote #74 topic: zola-dictionary, A Zola Dictionary; the Characters of the Rougon-Macquart Novels of Emile Zola, Patterson, J. G

VINEUIL (GILBERTE DE), daughter of Commandant de Vineuil. She was first
married to Maginot, and afterwards to Jules Delaherche. When she was
nine years old, her father, alarmed at a cough she had, sent her to live
at a farm, where she came to know Henriette Levasseur. Even at that
age she was a coquette, and when at twenty she married Maginot, the
Inspector of the State Forests at Mezieres, her character had not
changed. Mezieres she found dull, but her husband allowed her full
liberty, and she found all the gaiety she desired at Charleville. There
she lived solely for pleasure, and Captain Beaudoin became her lover. In
1869 she became a widow, and in spite of the stories told about her she
found a second husband, Jules Delaherche. On the eve of the battle of
Sedan she resumed for the nonce her former relations with Beaudoin. Gay
and irresponsible by nature, she flirted with Captain von Gartlauben,
a Prussian officer, who was quartered on her husband after the
capitulation of Sedan, while at the same time she carried on a liaison
with Edmond Lagarde, a young soldier who had been wounded, and whom she
had assisted to nurse. La Debacle.
