Jacqueline de Romilly was a noted Franco-Greek philologist. She was the first woman nominated to the Collège de France, and the second woman to enter the Académie française.

Jacqueline David was born on 26 March 1913 at 26 rue des Crépinières in Chartres. She was the daughter of Maxime Jules David, teacher at Lycée Marceau in Chartres, and Jeanne Marie Charlotte Léonie Malvoisin[1]. Her father was killed at the beginning of the war, on 2 October 1914 in Somme[2]. She became a ward of the State in March 1921[1].

She married Michel Worms de Romilly on 7 April 1940 in Grosrouvre. They later divorced on 29 June 1972.[1][3]
