High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Georges-Charles de Heeckeren d'Anthès, baron (5 February 1812 2 November 1895) was a French military officer and politician. Despite his later career as a senator under the Second French Empire, d'Anthès's name is most famous because of the duel he fought with Russia's greatest poet, Alexander Pushkin. Born in Colmar (France) to a French royalist émigré family, first boy among six children, he was destined for a military career. He was therefore sent to Saint-Cyr, the prime French military academy, and, in 1830, as cavalry officer, he supported Charles X's party during the July Revolution. After the exile of the latter, d'Anthès refused to serve under the July Monarchy, resigned from the army and withdrew to his father's home in Alsace. As he was authorized by the French government to serve abroad without losing his nationality, he set off for Prussia, then for Russia, countries where his family had many connections (his mother was Prinz von Hatzfeld's niece). In St. Petersburg, he succeeded in entering the Knights Guards of the Empress as cornet. Two years later, in 1836, he became lieutenant.

Ulrich Fleischhauer (1876, Thamsbrück, now part of Bad Langensalza, Germany ? 1960) was a leading antisemitic publisher of books and news articles reporting on an alleged Judeo-Masonic conspiracy theory and supposed "nefarious plots" by clandestine Jewish interests to dominate the world. His career was at first grounded in the Imperial German Army where by 1918 Fleischhauer rose to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel and regimental commander of a field artillery unit in Colmar. After suffering serious wounds, Fleischhauer retired from military service and received a government pension, although he continued to serve for some time as chairman of the National Federation of German Officers (Nationalverbandes Deutscher Offiziere).
