French noted family, the wife of naturalist writer Emile Zola. They married in 1870, but Zola established a permanent liaison with laundress Jeanne Rozerot in 1888 with whom he had two children.

Though Alexandrine deeply resented the affair, she legally recognized the two kids in 1906.

Emile and Alexandrine returned from their summer vacation at Medan to their home in Paris on 9/28/1902. They lit a fire in the bedroom and retired; the doors and windows were closed as was their habit. In the night they both woke, feeling desperately ill. A blocked chimney was delivering deadly carbon monoxide from the smoldering coals. In the morning servants found them, Emile dead and Alexandrine, who later recovered, unconscious. Zola was accorded a state funeral, interred in the Pantheon.
