Mademoiselle Lenormand was the author of two famous divinatory card decks: one made of 54 cards and one composed of 36 cards that can be easily used also by beginners and are sometimes found as vintage cards.

Who Was Mlle Lenormand?

Without any doubt, she is one of the most famous cartomancy readers of all time.
This legendary card reader was born in 1772 in Alençon, France. She was orphaned at an early age and educated in a convent school.
All historical information about her life and her achievements are actually very controversial because she was especially skillful in promoting her image and abilities with extensive writings.
It is said that her fame started when Josephine Beauharnais, Napoleon’s wife, became a habitual client and was predicted that her husband would become emperor.
Lenormand was also a chiromancer and her reputation soared when she told Bonaparte about his secret wish to divorce his wife. This indiscretion cost the fortune-teller her imprisonment in 1809.
Nevertheless, the time in jail of the resourceful lady didn’t last long, and actually, the episode further added to her fame as a clairvoyant.
