In 1769 Chevalier D’Eon de Beaumont stepped out of the limelight as a French diplomat to England, Russian spy, Prussian war hero and international bon viveur, only to step back in as the woman she truly was.
Celebrity, intrigue and scandal aplenty, 'D’Eon' is the bizarre and amazing true story of one of the most infamous, outrageous, unsung warriors of history and the first openly documented transgendered person in European history.
