Alexandre Dumas fils was the illegitimate son of a Paris dressmaker and the renowned author of The Three Musketeers. Dumas père took him from his mother as a child (French law then allowed that), and gave the child a marvelous education at schools that included the Institution Goubaux and the Collège Bourbon -- but he could not take from the child the memory of his mother. Dumas fils spent much of his life writing of the loss of her -- in works like Camille and this novel, The Son of Clemenceau. Alexandre Dumas fils died at Marly-le-Roi, Yvelines, on November 27, 1895; he is buried in the Cimetière de Montmartre in Paris.
