Armandine Aurore Lucille Dupin (1804 - 1876) wrote under the pseudonym George Sand. She was a controversial yet very popular novelist and memoirist of her time, earning more notoriety than both Victor Hugo and Honore de Balzac in the 1830s and 1840s. A feminist before feminism, Sand often wore men's clothing and smoked tobacco, against all social conventions of the time. She was involved in controversial relationships with notable figures of the time, including Chopin, and was a friend of Gustave Flaubert.
