Ex Libris Victor FOUCHER (1802-1866)



The son of Pierre Foucher (1772-1845), Victor Foucher became a high magistrate and attorney-general at Rennes. During his youth he was a friend of Vitor Hugo who lived next door. He received the grand officer of the Légion d'honneur.
His sister Adèle Foucher (1803 ­ 1868) married the celebrated writer Victor Hugo despite family opposition apparently due to political reasons.
