Resource Toolbox

JULIA PARDOE (1806-1862), English writer, was born at Beverley, Yorkshire, in 1806. When fourteen years old she published a volume of poems. In 1835 she went to Constantinople and her experiences there furnished her with material for vivid pictures of Eastern life in the City of the Sultan (1837), Romance of the Harem (1839) and Beauties of the Bosphorus (1839). Her other works, not always historically accurate, include Louis XI V. and the Court of France in the Seventeenth Century (1847); The Court and Reign of Francis I.(1849); The Life and Memoirs of Marie de Medici (1852); Episodes of French History during the Consulate and the First Empire (1859); and several sprightly and pleasant novels. In 1860 she was granted a civil list pension. She died on the 26th of November 1862.
