Madame Saqui

Revolutionary Rope Dancer

A stunning picture book biography about the tightrope walker who dazzled Paris as she danced across the sky with impeccable balance and unparalleled skill during the French Revolution.

In revolutionary France, a girl named Marguerite Lalanne longed to perform above large crowds on a tightrope, just like her acrobatic parents. Eventually, Marguerite would perform as Madame Saqui, waltzing and pirouetting across — and never falling off — countless ropes above adoring crowds. A nouvelle chérie de Paris, Madame Saqui cemented her place in circus history, winning the adoration of the French people and royalty alike, including Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. 

This remarkable biography unveils the inspiring story of a trailblazing woman who revolutionized the circus world — without ever missing a step.
