Victor Margueritte

Portrait of Victor Margueritte in 1918 Victor Margueritte (1 December 186623 March 1942) and his brother Paul Margueritte (1860–1918), French novelists, both born in Algeria, were the sons of General Jean Auguste Margueritte (1823–1870), who after an honorable career in Algeria was mortally wounded in the great cavalry charge at Sedan and died in Belgium on 6 September 1870. An account of their father's life was published by Paul as ''Mon père'' (1884; enlarged ed., 1897). The names of the two brothers are generally associated, on account of their collaboration.

Victor entered his father’s regiment, the Chasseurs d'Afrique, in 1888, and served in the army until 1896, when he resigned his commission. He was already known by some volumes of poetry, and by a translation from Calderon (, played at the Odéon, 1898) when he began to collaborate with his brother. Together they worked on several novels and historical works.

Victor Margueritte wrote several theatrical "''charades''" and collaborated with Paul on at least one pantomime: ''La Peur''. His novel ''La Garçonne'' (1922) was considered so shocking it caused the author to lose his Légion d'honneur. Provided by Wikipedia
