The details (from wikipedia)
Coralie Grévy (1811-1893) was a first lady of France in 1879-1887. She was married to President Jules Grévy.
As first lady, Coralie Grévy as well as her spouse wished to live a simple life and not burden the finances of the state. She agreed to host three balls a year and continue the charity instated by her predecessor, but saw to it that all representation was so sheep as possible and benefited French work force, such as in the work on the Presidential Palace. In high society, she was mocked and made fun of because of her middle-class background and lack of habit in mixing with the aristocracy, and exposed to social snubs and gossip about her mistakes in this regard.
