Charles Édouard Joseph Rotalier (1804–1849)

Rotalier, Charles Édouard Joseph (rō-täl-yā’). A French historian and publicist; born at Villerspoz near Colombier, in 1804; died on July 21, 1849. He began his literary career with two romances, ‘The Captive of Barberousse’ and ‘The Daughter of the Dey,’ suggested by his sojourn in Africa in command of a regiment. But he soon abandoned fiction for more serious work, and wrote the ‘History of Algiers,’ and ‘France and her Relations with Europe.’
