dc.description.abstract Monarchy in France has not yet given up and still tries to be part of a future Republican French Administration, this time via general elections. The "Aigle" was a right-wing paper, supporting the return of monarchy. It seems that even Macaire, now exiled in Belgium, is dreaming about a return to France once the old system has come to power again. Robert Macaire may seem to be a realistic figure, however one should remember that in reality he is an artificial personality, created in 1823 by Benjamin Antier for his play „ L’Auberge des Adrets“. The breakthrough came in 1834, when Frédéric Lemaitre used the names of Macaire and his somewhat simple partner Serres-Bertrand for his various comedies in Paris. The figure of Macaire goes back as far as 1371, when - as the legend goes - Aubri de Montdidier, a nobleman from the court of Charles V was assassinated by Macaire. The murder was vindicated by his dog, the only witness of the assassination. A duel between the dog and Macaire, who was armed with a cudgel, should settle the case. The dog killed Macaire, who confessed the murder before he died. en_US
