Sophie Françoise Trebuchet was a French painter and the mother of Victor Hugo. She was born on June 19, 1772 in Nantes and died on June 27, 1821 in Paris, France.

Sophie Françoise Trébuchet was born on June 19, 1772, in Nantes, rue des Carmélites, the fourth of eight children. Her father, Jean-François Trébuchet, was captain of a ship and her mother Louise Le Normand (1748-1780), from Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine, was the daughter of the seneschal Château-Thébaud.[2] Some time after her birth, Trébuchet was baptized in the church of Saint-Laurent.

She became an orphan at the age of eight, when her mother died on August 14, 1780, three weeks after giving birth to her eighth child, who did not survive. Her father, in financial trouble, was forced to accept a mission in the Indian Ocean from shipowners in Brest. He auctioned off some of the couple's property in order to pay for the equipment of the ship "The Count of Grasse", and then embarked. He took care before his departure to place his seven surviving children in boarding school, while the two eldest went respectively to his nephew Louis Trébuchet and his sister-in-law Louise Mathurine Le Normand du Buisson. After the death of their father, the children were divided between the remaining family, while Trébuchet left her guardian, Menant-Dugué, to meet her paternal aunt, Françoise-Louise Trébuchet.
