Louis-Auguste Blanqui
Birth: Feb. 8, 1805
Death: Jan. 1, 1881

French Political Radical. Called "The Eternal Revolutionary", he spent more than half his life in prison. Blanqui took part in the French Revolution of 1848, and that of 1870 which deposed Napoleon III. Arrested by the new government, the Commune of Paris tried to obtain his freedom but was unsuccessful. Released from prison in 1879, he was elected to France's Chamber of Deputies but was not allowed to serve. His followers, the Blanquists, eventually joined with the mainstream socialists. (bio by: David Conway)
