French writer, master of short story, also an historian and state archeologist. His novella "Carmen," a story about jealousy and unfaithfulness, inspired George Bizet's world famous opera. Considered one of the greatest names of the French romantic movement, he often used the theme of destructive love in his short stories. His work included "Colomba" and more. Merimee died on 23 September 1870.

Note from Patrice: the record shows: ‘’On the 6 Vendémiaire (*), year XII of the Republic, noted at 5 o’clock, born yesterday at 10 pm in Paris, Carré Ste Geneviève number 7, Panthéon division, son of Jean-François Léonov MÉRIMÉE, painter and of Anne [...] MOREAU his wife’’. According to my conversion table, the 5 Vendémiaire of year XII corresponds to the 28th . This date has also been added to the record. But the Encyclopedia of Authors (Bouquins) indicates September 27 !"
(*) Note : Vendémiaire was the first month of the Republican calendar, it corresponds to September 22 up to October 21 in our gregorian calendar.
