Marguerite Delamarre was a French nun of Longchamp abbey in Paris and the inspiration for Suzanne Simonin in La Religieuse by Diderot.

In 1758 Delamarre was the talk of the salons because she had demanded the French justice to be freed from the cloister her parents had enclosed her in by emotional blackmail.

Her history is told in Convents and nuns in eighteenth-century French politics and culture (page 105) by Mita Choudhury.
