Marquise de Caylus
Marthe-Marguerite Le Valois de Villette de Mursay, marquise de Caylus (1673–1729), was a French noblewoman and writer.
Born in Poitou, she was the daughter of vice-admiral Philippe, Marquis de Villette-Mursay, and Marie-Anne de Châteauneuf, who died in 1691. Her father was a cousin of Madame de Maintenon, who brought up Marthe-Marguerite like her own daughter.
In 1686 she married Anne de Tubières, comte de Caylus (1666–1704), and had two sons. Her elder son, Anne-Claude-Philippe (1692–1765), was also a man of letters and an archaeologist.
