    Synopsis

    In 1792, Catherine Hubscher, a laundry maid, saved, with the assistance of her betrothed, Sergeant Lefebvre, a noble Austrian, Count Neipperg. The years pass and Lefebvre becomes the Marshal of France and Duke of Dantzig. He has married Catherine, nicknamed Madame Sans-Gêne because of her frankness and earthy language.
