Alexandre Dumas


French writer, one of the great French novelists and dramatists. His books include "The Count Of Monte Cristo" in 1845 and "The Three Musketeers" in 1844. Dumas was the son of a general and a black grandfather. After a desultory education by a priest, he went to Paris in 1823 and became a copyist, establishing himself as a historical playwright in 1829. By 1840, after several unsuccessful plays, he turned full time to novel writing. Lavish spending and the Revolution of 1848 depleted his resources and he fled to Belgium to escape his creditors in 1851. Chiefly remembered for his plays and novels, Dumas also wrote travel books, memoirs and historical studies. Dumas traveled widely, wrote prolifically, lived extravagantly, and died poor.

Dumas had one illegitimate son, Alexandre Dumas, (known as Dumas fils), born 27 July 1824 and he married the actress Ida Ferrier on 1 February 1840. He died of a stroke on 5 December 1870 in Puys, near Dieppe, France.
