Auguste Romieu (1800–1855)

Romieu, Auguste (rém-yė’). A French administrator and littérateur; born at Paris, Oct. 17, 1800; died on Nov. 20, 1855. He spent his youth in dissipation, and in the production of vaudevilles and brilliant witticisms; but after the Coup d’État, published two works of merit which attracted attention, ‘The Era of the Cæsars’ (1850) and ‘The Red Spectre’ (1851).
