Today is apparently her birthday, since google made her their homepage today.

Apparently she was a swedish countess who discovered how to make potato flour (and alcohol) in 1746 reducing famine in sweden, and presumably everywhere that potatoes could grow.

Not sure if you could invent potato flour in game and what benefit you'd get if you did, but I guess potato vodka isn't as old as I thought it was.

Alas, she isn't born yet in game 10.

Her inventions are in period and therefore within the scope of academies, though.
