When she termed her works Contes de Fee (Fairy Tales, 1697), she originated the term that is w generally used for the genre. In 1666, she was given at the age of sixteen in an arranged marriage to a Parisian thirty years older- Francois de la Motte, Baron d'Auly, of the household of the duc de Vend?'me. In 1669, the Baron d'Auly was accused of treason but the accusations, in which Mme d'Auly appeared to be involved, proved to be false. She published twelve books including three pseudo-memoirs, two fairy tale collections and three historical vels. Gaining the reputation as a historian and recorder of tales from outside of France, and elected as a member of Paduan Accademia dei Ricovvati, she was called by the name of the muse of history, Clio. Her works include: Histoire d'Hippolyte: Comte de Duglas (History of Hippolyte: Count of Duglas, 1690) and Contes Nouveaux; ou, Les Fees a la Mode (New Tales; or, Fairies in Fashion, 1698).
