Folk Figure. Born Ernestine Sophie Claudine Niaudet she married Pierre-Eugène-Marcellin Berthelot, a chemist who pioneered organic synthesis, and taught Organic Chemistry at the École Supérieure de Pharmacie, Paris. They had six children. The couple died suddenly within hours of each other and were interered together at the Parthenon in Paris. She was for many years the only woman entombed there, "in homage to her conjugal virtue," until Pierre and Marie Curie were reinterred there in 1995.
