Victor Henri Joseph Brahain Ducange

Victor Henri-Joseph Brahain du Cange (or Ducange) (November 24, 1783October 15, 1833) was a French novelist and dramatist, born at the Hague, where his father was secretary to the French embassy.

Dismissed from the civil service at the Restoration, Ducange became one of the favorite authors of the liberal party, and owed some part of his popularity to the fact that he was fined and imprisoned more than once for his outspokenness. He was six months in prison for an article in his journal (1822); for ''Valentine'' (1821), in which the royalist excesses in the south of France were pilloried, he was again imprisoned; and after the publication of (1823), he took refuge for some time in Belgium.

Ducange wrote numerous plays and melodramas, among which the most successful were (1836), and (1827), in which Frédérick Lemaître found one of his best parts. Many of his books were prohibited, ostensibly for their coarseness, but perhaps rather for their political tendencies. He died in Paris. Provided by Wikipedia
