Marie-Elizabeth Cléry (or Mme Duverge-Cléry) née Du Verger or Du Verge (b. 1761, d. after 1795) was a French harpist and composer. She was probably born in Paris and became a harpist in the court of Marie-Antoinette.[1] After her marriage to Jean-Baptiste Cant-Hanet dit Cléry, she published three sonatas for harp accompanied by violin, Trois Sonates pour La Harpe ou Piano-forte avec Accompagnement de Violon (1785).[2][3]
