OriginEdit

Jeanne Baret (sometimes spelled Baré or Barret) (July 27, 1740 – August 5, 1807) was a member of Louis Antoine de Bougainville's expedition on the ships La Boudeuse and Étoile in 1766–1769. Baret is recognized as the first woman to have completed a voyage of circumnavigation.

Jeanne Baret joined the expedition disguised as a man, calling herself Jean Baret. She enlisted as valet and assistant to the expedition's naturalist, Philibert Commerçon (anglicized as Commerson), shortly before Bougainville's ships sailed from France. According to Bougainville's account, Baret was herself an expert botanist.

TodayEdit

The hat was collected by Warehouse 11 agents after they heard of Jeanne and what she had done. Since being able to disgusie oneself for such a long period of time was a great feat, they decided to go see if she may have created an artifact, and their thoughts were proven to be correct.
