The popular French novelist Alexandre Dumas (father) was born on July 24, 1802. An adjective older is added to his name because his son bore the same name and surname and was also a famous writer. He was born in Villers-Cotterêts in northern France. His father was the French revolutionary general Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, specific for his dark skin color.

Alexandre Dumas (father) is best known for the historical novels The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo and Queen Margot. The influence of his novels was felt throughout European popular literature, and he was the most popular novelist and playwright of his time. He has written, what I have, what in collaboration with others, about 300 novels and plays. He is credited with the theater because he wrote the first historical romantic drama, Henry III. and his court. He became very rich by writing novels in sequels for which all the great newspapers of the time competed.

After the arrival of Napoleon III. to power he went to Brussels, where he wrote 22 volumes of Memoirs. When he returned to Paris, the taste of the audience changed – romanticism gave way to realism. Dumas founded several newspapers and then joined Garibaldi in his endeavor to liberate southern Italy and Sicily from the rule of the Neapolitan Bourbons. He remained in Naples for four years as curator, after returning to France he lived carefree and died in 1870 almost poor.
