Louis (Andrieux) Aragon is Notable.


His biological father, Louis Andrieux, was an ex-senator and much older than his mother, who passed Louis Andrieux off as the godfather during Aragon's childhood.

Louis Aragon served in the First World War. After the 1918 Armistice he was associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. With strong left-wing views, he joined the Communist Party in 1927.

1939 he married Russian-born author Elsa Triolet, the sister of Lilya Brik who had been a mistress of the Russian poet Mayakovsky.

Aragon was mobilized in 1939, and awarded the Croix de guerre (War Cross) and the military medal for acts of bravery. After the fall of France he joined the Resistance and went underground for most of the Nazi occupation of France.

Best known as a poet, he was also an editor of left-wing journals and, for a time, head of a publishing house.
