The life of Charlotte Bronte
Charlotte Bronte was born in Thornton, Yorkshire in the North of England in 1816, was the third daughter of Patrick Bronte and Maria Branwell. Charlotte and her other four sisters and brother all loved reading. They would write histories and newspapers based of imaginary places. Later in 1824, the four oldest daughters were sent to a boarding school, which later proved to be the cause of death of two sisters, Elizabeth and Maria. As time passed, Charlotte became a teacher, was a governess for two families for a short period of time and finally she had opened a school of her own along with her sister Emily. In 1842 Charlotte went to study languages at a school in Brussels where she fell in love with a man that didn't return her feelings. Charlotte and her two sisters had to publish their written works under male pseudonyms, because female writers weren't respected during that time. After the deaths of her two remaining sisters and brother, Charlotte was wed to a curate of her father's. The marriage didn't last long, because Charlotte died due to an illness.
