Charlotte Bronte

(1816-1855)

English Author
A tragic destiny

The third daughter of the Rev. Patrick Bronte and his wife Maria, had a tragic destiny. A year later, Charlotte discovered Emily's poems which she decided to publish under the pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell.

Charlotte wrote then The Professor, which couldn't find any publisher, but the following year, her Jane Eyre, Emily's Wurthering Heights, and Ann's Agnes Grey were all published under the Bell pseudonyms. In 1848, her brother Branwell died, after he had become an alcoholic and a drug addict. Emily died a few months later, and Ann died the following year. At the age of 4 she lost her mother, being then the eldest of a family of 4. In 1826, after Mr. Bront‰ had brought home a box of wooden soldiers for his son to play with, Charlotte, Emily, Branwell and Ann, playing with the soldiers, formed the idea of writing about an imaginary world, which they named Angria. In 1844, the three Bront‰ sisters decided to found a school. It turned to a great disaster.


In 1852, the Rev. Nicholls proposed marriage to Charlotte. Her father opposed himself violently at first. Charlotte, who was not in love, refused him. They finally got married in 1854, but Charlotte caught a pneumonia while she was expecting a child, and probably seized upon this illness as an opportunity to end her life. Charlotte died in 1855 after a long and painful illness.
