Abstract

History offers few examples of as fearless and fierce soldiers as Renee Bordereau. Vendée soldiers witnessed her exploits and admired the cavalry rider, who was called the Brave Angevin, all without knowing that she was a woman. Always on horseback at the front, Bordereau would not leave the battlefield, even when she received serious injuries. She devoted herself entirely to fighting the Republicans during the War of the Vendée. Even five years in filthy jails could not curb her convictions. And it was with the same fighting spirit that she dictated her memoirs, which were among the first accounts published of the Vendée Wars.
