Object description :

"Bronze Plate"
Bronze plaque with the profile of Victor Noir. Victor Noir, barely 22 years old, was a journalist with the Marseillaise, a revolutionary and violently anti-Bonapartist leaf. It had been founded a few months earlier by polemicist and extreme left MP Henri Rochefort. Prince Bonaparte, son of Lucien Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon I and cousin of Napoleon III, who was considered defamed by an article in La Marseillaise, challenged his editor, Pascal Grousset, in a duel. The latter sends Victor Noir and a friend to the home of the prince, 9 rue d'Auteuil to organize the duel. The interview is going badly. Victor Noir, he seems, raises his cane on the prince and the latter grabbing a pistol, fires at the young man and kills him.
