This antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's historical work "e;Murat"e;. Joachim-Napoleon Murat was the brother-in-law of Napoleon Boneparte, and held many titles in his life including Marshal of France, Grand Admiral of France, Grand Duke of Berg, and King of Naples. The story was first published as part of Dumas's eight-volume series "e;Celebrated Crimes"e; (1839-40), and recounts Murat's fall from favour and fascinating death subsequent to Napoleon's own demise. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "e;The Three Musketeers"e; and "e;The Count of Monte Cristo"e;. Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his decidedly extravagant lifestyle. His novels have been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over 200 motion pictures. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing this antiquarian book in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
