The Little Lenormand and his cartomancer


Who was this Madame Lenormand?

Marie-Anne Adélaïde Lenormand, born in Alençon on May 27, 1772 and died in Paris on June 25, 1843 was the most famous cartomancer of the nineteenth century.

A gypsy predicted her, very small, the glory, the money and the fame . This prediction turned out to be true. Years later, Marie-Anne Adélaïde, nicknamed ‘Madame Truth‘ is one of the most famous and most coveted cartomancer of the nineteenth century. His consultations cost a fortune. She counted Napoléon de Bonaparte and Josephine de Beauharnais in her regular consultants.


In 1793, Robespierre stopped her because Madame Vérité announced a counter-revolution. She thus caused trouble among the people. But, even imprisoned, Madam Vérité keeps restoring the truth thanks to her extraordinary gift: she predicts to the noble women imprisoned with her a deliverance that will not delay.

Several times she was arrested, but always released.
Before being arrested for the first time, she had settled in a bookstore because the exercise of clairvoyance was prohibited.


She designed a game specially for the personal use of the wife of a very high dignitary of the empire. This game was to remain a unique piece. This unique piece, we have never found …
150 years later, flipping through a book on the docks; the manuscript describing the game, how it was used and its presentation was found, « by the greatest chance« …

This game was restored by Grimaud. He republished it in French and English, and then added a small explanatory booklet.

The little Lenormand include thirty-seven cards.
