She became a prominent figure in French society, and was the mistress of, among others, Napoleon III and Napoléon Joseph Charles Paul Bonaparte. Efforts by newspapers to publish pictures of her on her deathbed led to the introduction of privacy rights into French law. This section needs additional citations for verification. Rachel Félix was born as Elisabeth Félix on 28 February 1821, in Mumpf, Rheinfelden, Aargau, to a family of Jewish background. Her father, Jacob Félix, was a peddler and her mother, Esther Hayer, was a Bohemian dealer in second-hand clothes.

As a child, Félix earned money singing and reciting in the streets. She arrived in Paris in 1830 intending to become an actress. She took elocution and singing lessons, eventually studying under the instruction of the musician Alexandre-Étienne Choron and Saint-Aulaire. Rachel was described as a very serious and committed student.

She was admired for her intelligence, work ethic, diction, and ability to act. Auditioning in March 1838, she starred in Pierre Corneille’s Horace at the Théâtre-Français at the age of 17. During this time she began a liaison with Louis Véron, the former director of the Paris Opera, which became the subject of much gossip. Her fame spread throughout Europe after success in London in 1841, and she was often associated with the works of Racine, Voltaire, and Corneille. Although French classical tragedy was no longer popular at the time Rachel entered the stage of Comédie-Française, she remained true to her classical roots, arousing audiences with a craving for the tragic style of writers like Corneille, Racine and Molière. She created the title role in Eugène Scribe’s Adrienne Lecouvreur.

Félix’s health declined after a long tour of Russia. She died early in 1858, aged 36, from tuberculosis in Le Cannet, Alpes-Maritimes, France. Upon her deathbed, she wrote many farewell letters to her sons, family members, lovers, colleagues and theatre connections at Comédie-Française. The English theatre critic James Agate published a biography of her in 1928, which echoes the anti-Semitism of his day. A modern account of her life and legacy by Rachel Brownstein was published in 1995. The character « Vashti » in Charlotte Brontë’s novel Villette was reportedly based on Félix, whom Brontë had seen perform in London. Rachel, a light tannish colour, primarily for face-powder used in artificial light, is named after her.

The raschel knitting-machine is according to the OED also named after her. The troupe separated in Cuba in December. Juliette Récamier – Une éclatante maturité ». Tragic Muse: Rachel of the Comédie-Française. Oxford English Dictionary, OED2 on CD-ROM v 1.
