Trivia (1)

Rousseau lived for 30 years with an uneducated seamstress named Thérèse Lavasseur, whom he met in 1745. They had five children, all of whom Rousseau had sent to foundling homes in infancy. Conditions being very poor at orphanages in the 18th century, it is unlikely any of them survived. Late in life Rousseau came to regret his actions and tried to track his children down in the hopes of contacting them or at least knowing their final fates, but had no success.
