    Count Rumford (Benjamin Thompson) was of course one of the founders of thermodynamics, the man who proposed the concept of the mechanical equivalent of heat. But Mme Lavoisier was a remarkable woman, and probably the only one I know who married two scientists who were among the most important in history.

    Thanks for giving some props to Count Rumford. He was definitely an interesting character too. Besides being a scientist he also fought for the Loyalist army during the American Revolution. Living in Germany, I take particular pleasure in the fact he founded the Englischer Garten in Munich, which is my favorite place in that city to while away an afternoon… Although some choose to go surfing in the Englischer Garten instead: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2008/01/munich-8217-s-malibu/6568/
