MCA , novelist or historical romance-writer, travel-writer, author of fairy tales and scandal fictions, was highly influential in each of these roles in England in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, as well as her native France. She belonged in the popular tradition, as is shown by the constant reshuffling of her writings, complete or in part, sometimes spliced with the writings of others. Where no copies of a particular printing survive, they were probably read to pieces. New translations in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century show her continuing importance to women writing in English.

She wears a plain V-neck bodice with no jewellery except a metal bandolier; her hair is brushed back and frizzed. The oval portrait stands on a plinth inscribed: "Marie Catherine le Jumel de Berneville Comtesse d’Aulnoi" with the date of her death.
