HEDOUIN (MADAME CAROLINE), wife of M. Hedouin, the proprietor of a
draper's shop in Paris known as "The Ladies' Paradise." She was a
handsome woman with strong commercial capabilities, and during the
frequent absences of her husband she undertook the management of the
business. When Octave Mouret came to Paris, he first got employment at
"The Ladies' Paradise," and with a view to establishing his position he
conceived the idea of becoming Madame Hedouin's lover. She discouraged
his advances, however, and he gave up his situation. M. Hedouin died
soon afterwards, and his widow, finding the responsibilities of business
too heavy, invited Octave Mouret to return; a few months afterwards they
were married. Pot-Bouille.

After her marriage with Octave Mouret the business extended rapidly, and
an enlargement of the shop soon became necessary. While the work was in
progress she met with an accident which resulted in her death three days
later. Au Bonheur des Dames.
