Georges Boulanger
Birth: 1837
Rennes
Departement d'Ille-et-Vilaine
Bretagne, France
Death: 1891
Ixelles
Brussels-Capital Region, Belgium

Soldier (General). His mistress Marguerite de Bonnemain (1856 - 1891) died at 35. The words "A bient™t" (see you soon) were written under her name on the grave. Boulanger planned a military revolution in France, but the boulangiste revolt failed miserably. He fled to Brussels and shot himself on his mistress's grave, thus becoming one of the few people to have died on his own tomb in a public cemetery. Only their first names are written on the grave. The sentence "Ai-je pu vivre deux mois et demi sans toi !" (How could I live two and a half months without you !) is written under Boulanger's name). 

Cause of death: Suicide
