We’re joined by author Maya Deane (Wrath Goddess Sing) to talk about La Chevalière d’Éon, an audacious and incredibly interesting trans woman from 18th century France who was a spy, soldier, author, celebrity, and overall icon. Along the way, Maya also shares the stories of Joseph Boulange Le Chevalier De Saint-Georges, the Abbé de Choisy/Comtesse de Barres, Prince Philippe, and Achilles herself!
