Gretchen was a garden gnome of German manufacture, who "lived" with her husband Jiri in Saint-Clément, Normandy, in the 20th century. They lived next door to Vaclav, who, like Jiri, was "born" in Czechoslovakia. All three considered themselves naturalized French gnomes. In 1995, Jiri was tragically dropped on the pavement and shattered.
In 1996, Gretchen, Vaclav, and several other gnomes of Saint-Clément were "liberated" by the Garden Gnome Freedom Front, an organization consisting entirely of Alizon Riand, Raquel Guibert, and Becca Milleron.
