ALEXANDRE DUMAS

Classic Literary Author Biography

classic book author alexandre dumanAlexandre Dumas (1802-1870)

Alexandre Dumas was a French author (born in the vicinity of Paris) who wrote historical adventure novels. Some of his most famous works include The Three Misketeers, Man in the Iron Mask and The Count of Monte Cristo.

Dumas was raised in poverty by his mother after his father (a military man) lost his life when Alexandre was only four years old. By the time Dumas was a young man, his father’s old connections to those in higher circles, enabled Dumas to gain employment at the Palais Royal in Paris where he began writing plays for the theatre, and magazine articles.

In 1840 Alexandre Dumas married the actress, Ida Ferrier, although his infidelity led to a number of illegitimate children being raised. Later when Napoleon Bonaparte came to power in 1851, Dumas traveled to Belgium to escape his creditors, as whilst he was prosperous, he often spent more than he earned. From Belgium he relocated to Russia for a couple of years, and then to Italy.

In more recent times, French President Jacques-Chirac had Alexandre Dumas’ body exhumed in 2002, and laid to rest at the Pantheon in Paris in a televised event.
