Chevaliers du cygne ou la cour de Charlemagne: Conte historique et moral 1795
In France during the 1770s and 80s a number of medieval vernacular texts, dealing with Charlemagne were repackaged and published for a popular audience. The most well-known was the Old French vernacular verse-epic Chanson de Roland in which Charlemagne remains the focus of ‘French’ identity. In the Chevaliers Charlemagne emerges as a model of reason, a great king, a democrat and a good family man. The work met with instant success. De Genlis served as governess to the children of the duc d’Orléans and went on the become an inspector of primary schools under Napoleon.
