French heiress and author of Bible commentaries and works on Jewish-Christian relations. The only daughter and thus under French law heiress of Liliane Bettencourt, Meyers was raised in a strictly Catholic household. However she married the Jewish grandson of a rabbi murdered at Auschwitz. After marriage, Meyers decided to convert and raise her children as Jews. Her marriage caused controversy as a result of her grandfather's trial for collaboration with the Nazi regime.
In 2008, she sued François-Marie Banier for taking money from her 'unstable' mother, and started proceedings to have her mother declared mentally incompetent. The revelations in the secret recordings she used in evidence were at the origin of the Woerth-Bettencourt scandal. In December 2010, Françoise Bettencourt-Meyers announced that she had settled out of court with François-Marie Banier and her mother.
After a fire severely damaged Notre-Dame de Paris, Bettencourt Meyers and L'Oréal donated $226 million to repair the cathedral.
