Book title:

Kornmann Affair

Keyword type: Sub-category

Keyword definition: Works relating to or produced by either side in the ‘Cause célèbre’ known as the Kornmann affair, a legal and pamphleteering battle between the financier Guillaume Kornmann and his much younger wife Catherine Kornmann in 1787-9. The affair began as a simple petition for divorce based upon the wife’s infidelity, but Madame Kornmann defenders, who included Beaumarchais, succeeded in transforming the case into a sexual and political scandal, indicting several leading members of the French government in the process. A sub-category of ‘Law’ and ‘Causes celebres’.
