Portrait of French balloonist Sophie Blanchard during her flight in Milan, Italy, 1811. Artist: Luigi Rados

Portrait of French balloonist Sophie Blanchard during her flight in Milan, Italy, 1811. Sophie Blanchard (1778-1819) was the wife of ballooning pioneer Jean-Pierre Blanchard. She made over 60 ascents, surviving losing consciousness, freezing temperatures and almost drowning after landing in a marsh. She became a favourite of Napoleon, who appointed her Aeronaut of the Official Festivals in 1804. The flight in Milan she is pictued making was to commemorate the Emperor's 42nd birthday. Blanchard was killed in 1819 during an exhibition in the Tivoli Gardens in Paris when fireworks she set off ignited the gas in her balloon, causing it to crash. From a private collection

Satirical engraving on the fire of the balloon of Miolan and Janinet 1784 (1887). French abbots Miolan and Janinet were ridiculed for their failed balloon ascent from the Jardin de Luxembourg. They had sold tickets to the event and crowds had gathered from six in the morning. However, by five in the afternoon the balloon had still not risen from the ground and the crowd became impatient. An angry mob attacked the balloon, tearing it to shreds and setting it alight. The two escaped unharmed, but the damage to their reputations was irreparable, and many lampoons and caricatures emerged shortly afterwards.
