Louis Dominique Cartouche (Paris 1693-1721) was a French bandit, criminal. He was the son of Jean Garthauszien and changed his name in Gartouse, later Cartouche. He didn’t pass school and became a criminal. He became head of a gang of robbers. He had the nickname l’enfant because he was short, about 1m50. He was acting together with Francois Louis Gurthus de Châtelet, who had the nickname Le Lorrain. They were very succesful together and had a large scene of chambermaids, butlers and informers in order to control the route between Versaille and Paris. In the end Le Lorrain betrayed Cartouche and Cartouche was taken prison in the Place de Grève. Cartouche and a huge number of the hundred colleague criminals were arrested and/or executed. He was a social bandit, a modern Robin Hood and entered history as a hero that is taking care of the weak in society.
