Victor Margueritte (1866 -1942) and his brother Paul Margueritte,(1860-1918), French novelists, both born in Algeria, were the sons of General Jean Auguste Margueritte (1823-1870), who after an honorable career in Algeria was mortally wounded in the great cavalry charge at Sedan, and died in Belgium, on the 6th of September 1870. An account of his life was published by Paul Margueritte as Man pere (1884; enlarged ed., 1897). The names of the two brothers are generally associated, on account of their collaboration. Paul Margueritte, who has given a picture of his home in Algiers in Le Jardin du pass (1895), was sent to the military school of La Fleche for the sons of officers, and became in 1880 clerk to the minister of public instruction. He designed two pantomimes, Pierrot assassin de sa femme (Théatre Libre, 1882), and Colombine pardonnee (Cercle funambulesque, 1888). Victor Margueritte is the author of La Garçonne.
