Louis Alibaud, a Frenchman notorious for his attempt to murder Louis Philippe, born at Nimes in 1810, died on the scaffold, July 11, 1836. In his 18th year he entered the army as a volunteer. During the revolution of 1830 he went over to the popular side, and was wounded at the barricades. Invalided in 1834, he resided alternately at Perpignan, Barcelona, and Paris. His attempt to shoot the king, inspired by political fanaticism and a morbid satiety of life, was made June 25, 1836, as his majesty was leaving the Tuileries in his carriage. Being instantly seized by the soldiery, his only regret was that he had failed in his endeavor.
