From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Pauline Julien (born May 23, 1928 - died September 30, 1998) was a singer, songwriter, actress, feminist activist and Quebec sovereigntist.

Born in Trois-Rivières, Québec, Julien was the companion of the poet and Québec deputy Gérald Godin, another Trifluvian and sovereigntist. She also worked with Gilles Vigneault and recorded with him. Julien performed pro-independence songs in Montréal clubs as early as 1964 and later made a career as one of Québec's most successful female popular singers. Julien's best-loved songs include "La Manic", the haunting ballad about love and separation in isolated Manicouagan, a river region of northern Québec near Labrador.

Diagnosed with a debilitating brain disease, Julien took her own life in late September 1998 in Montréal.

Julien is still to this day one of the most respected artists in Québec and elsewhere in the French-speaking world. Most treatments of her life show hagiographical tendencies.
