Anne-Marie-Louise d’Orléans
Anne-Marie-Louise d’Orleans has been described by historians as having been one of the richest heiresses in history, as an insurgent, as unaccomplished, as an Amazon, as a writer, and as a fool. And she was sort of all of those things.  Research:  Barine, Arvede, and Helen Meyer. “La Grande Mademoiselle 1627-1652.” Putnam. 1902.

A History of Mammography
The history of mammography begins with the discovery of X-rays in 1895.
