French citizen who is known as the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. She was onboard the La Boudeuse and Étoile ships of Louis Antoine de Bougainville, which traveled from 1766 to 1769. She did so disguised as a man, though she was on board the vessel to continue her role as an assistant to the French naturalist Philibert Commerçon.

Her other occupations included being a housekeeper, valet, botanist, and tavern-keeper.

The IAU (International Astronomical Union) named a mountain range on Pluto for her in 2018.
