Adolphe Belot (1829–1890)

Belot, Adolphe (be-lō’). A French novelist and dramatist (1829–90); traveled extensively and settled at Nancy as a lawyer. He won reputation with a witty comedy, ‘The Testament of César Girodot’ (1859, with Villetard); and being less successful with his following dramatic efforts, devoted himself to fiction. Of his novels may be mentioned: ‘The Venus of Gordes’ (1867, with Ernest Daudet), ‘The Drama of the Rue de la Paix’ (1868); ‘Article 47’ (1870); all of which were dramatized.
