Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin , best known by her nom de plume George Sand , was a French novelist, memoirist, and socialist.

Sand wrote: "My name is not Marie-Aurore de Saxe, Marquise of Dudevant, as several of my biographers have asserted, but Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin, and my husband, M. François Dudevant, claims no title: the highest rank he ever reached was that of infantry second lieutenant."
