Seems romantism is not as its peak nowadays.
Some cussing but romantic guys in uniform : Berthier longing daylife for Visconti, and by end of 19th general Boulanger, who committed suicide on the tomb of his mistress.
Now, two important questions :
- in Egypt, Berthier was the leader of the "faction des amoureux". Who were part of this faction ?
- Other examples of romantics in uniform from other countries ?
I like also Tallien, who took active part in Thermidor coup to save his wife from guillotine.
