Celebrated Crimes, Vol. 6: Part 3: Martin Guerre

Alexandre Dumas (1802 - 1870)
Translated by George Burnham Ives (1856 - 1930)

Martin Guerre was a French peasant that, during a long absence, was famously impersonated in the 16th century. Although the real Martin Guerre is suspected of no serious crimes, his imposter, Arnaud du Tilh, engaged in fraud and adultery while pursuing false claims to the Guerre inheritance. Dumas later incorporates this celebrated crime into his novel “The Two Dianas.” - Summary by jvanstan
