Biography

Francis de Croisset was a Belgian-born French playwright and opera librettist.[1]

Edgar Franz Wiener was born on 22 January 1876 at number 28, rue de l'Astronomie in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode near Brussels, the son of Alexandre Edouard Wiener, merchant, 27 years old, native of Brussels and his wife Eugénie Bertha Straus, 23, born in Frankfurt am Main[2][3]. He married Marie-Thérèse de Chevigné[3].

He died on 8 November 1937 in his home, 44 avenue Gabriel in the 8th arrondissement of Paris[3]. He was awarded the Croix de Guerre and the Légion d'honneur[3].

Important note: birth and death

Edgar Franz Wiener was not born on 28 January 1877 in Brussels, but on 22 January 1876 in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode. The date and place proposed by Wikipedia are incorrect. His birth on 22 January 1876 in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode is confirmed by:

  • His death act[3]
  • The birth extract found in his Légion d'honneur file[4]
  • His birth act, recorded on 24 January 1876 in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode[2].

Concerning his place of death, although his Légion d'honneur file and Wikipedia state it happened in Neuilly-sur-Seine, his death was recorded in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, the record stating that he died at home, 44 avenue Gabriel, in Paris[3].
