A few interesting facts about Charlotte Bronte, as we work our way through Jane Eyre...

  • She published Jane Eyre under the pen name "Currer Bell"

  • She was said to be the most dominant and ambitious of all the Brontes.

  • She was the only Bronte sister to live past 31 years old.

  • She was the only one of her sisters to marry. She married eight months before her passing.

  • Although her official death is listed as due to tuberculosis, there is speculation that she died from dehydration and malnourishment as brought on by severe morning sickness.
