University of Grenoble

1790 - 1798

Moves with her mother to Grenoble. Margot finds work as a maid in the University of Grenoble, and Genevieve assists, spending as much time reading the books and lecture notes as she does cleaning.
Over the next five years she learns that most of the teachers and students dislike direct questions from her regarding the content of classes or books, and she is eventually barred from the library. Adapting a more playful and flirtatious attitude, she is able to ask for favors, or get the academics around her to show off by talking about subjects that she finds interesting, and continues educating herself on ancient cultures and languages.
Eventually, she became a favorite of the faculty of letters and was invited to assist older professors in assembling research, writing lecture notes and even grading student work. While she was still employed as a maid and would never be invited to lecture herself, her expertise in several ancient languages was recognized.

Most of the rest of the staff and many of the faculty and students assumed that some level of impropriety was going on, and this was only sometimes the case, but she cared little.
