Teenage swordswoman. Grave-Robber. Arsonist. Nun. Assassin. Superstar. La Femme Nikita of the 1600s.
The true story of 17 year old Julie d’Aubigny, who took 17th century Paris by storm, by stardust and by steel. Queen of the underground duelling scene among the wealthy sons of noblemen, daughter of the King’s fencing master, she rose in scandal, blood, and reputation to become the leading star of the Paris Opera.
Distilled from French “Yé Yé” pop, 1980’s Delacorta beach novellas and Luc Besson films, Sword Girl: La Maupin is a Rococopunk sugar-frosted hand grenade.
