Christiane Benedikte [Benedicte] Eugenia Hebenstreit
Benedikte Naubert was a German writer, publishing over 50 novels and considered a pioneer in German women's literature. However, even in Germany, she is almost unknown. Her education was lead and directed by her mother and her half-brother, a professor of theology. She began writing at a young age and had her work printed anonymously through the agency of her half-brother. The first book to bare her name for its true identity was in 1817, entitled "Rosalba".
