d. 9-10-1749; complications of childbirth

Madame Émilie du Chatelet-Lomont was a mathematician, physicist and author. Einstein's famous equation for the energy of matter E=mc2 fits neatly with a principle recognised by Madame de Chatelet 150 years before Einstein in her book Institutions de Physique (“Lessons in Physics”), which she had prepared for her 13 year old son as a “Cliff Notes” study of the newest ideas of the time.

She translated Newton's Principia into French and was also great friends with Voltaire, (with her husband's blessing) and translated Newton's Principia into French.
