Évelyne Lever

Évelyne Lever (known simply in English as Evelyne Lever) is a contemporary French historian and writer.[1] She is married to a French historian, Maurice Lever, who is the author of Sade.[2]

Lever was previously a research engineer at CNRS, and then began to focus more on 18th-century history. In particular, she focuses on certain people, including Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and Madame de Pompadour.

Marie Antoinette: The Last Queen of France was her first book to be published in the United States.[2] It is less extensive than Lever's French version (Marie-Antoinette : la dernière reine), and was written specifically for an American audience.[1]

She continues to write on and about 18th-century history.[1]
