Jeanne Baret was the first woman to circumnavigate the globe despite it being illegal for women to board French Navy vessels in 1766. When Bougainville was commissioned to sail around the world, he asked renowned botanist Philibert Commerson to join him. Commerson couldn't leave behind his lover and assistant, Jeanne, so they disguised her as a teenage boy...everything was going to plan until they arrived in Tahiti.
