                          VENICE - Late 13th/Early 14th Century










Christine de Pizan was born in 1364 in Venice, Italy.

She was the daughter of Tommaso di Benvenuto da Pizzano (Thomas de Pizan; named for the family's origins in the town of Pizzano, in the south east of Bologna), a physician, Court Astrologer, and Councillor of the Republic of Venice.

Following Christine’s birth, Thomas de Pizan accepted an appointment to the court of Charles V of France, as the King’s Astrologer, alchemist, and physician. In this atmosphere, Christine was able to pursue her intellectual interests.

She successfully educated herself by immersing herself in languages, in the rediscovered classics and humanism of the early Renaissance, and in Charles V’s royal archive that housed a vast number of manuscripts. Pizan did not assert her intellectual abilities, or establish her authority as a writer until she was widowed at the age of twenty-four.
