Biography

Maquet was born in Paris in 1813. He studied at the Lycée Charlemagne where he became a professor at the age of 18. Trained as a historian, he turned to literature, and became close with such literary figures as Théophile Gautier and Gérard de Nerval. Through Nerval, he became acquainted with the already famous Dumas in 1838. Dumas was given a play by Maquet and rewrote it, producing the successful drama Bathilde.

The two started writing historical romances together, with Maquet outlining the plot and characters in draft form and Dumas adding colorful dialogue and details. At the insistence of the publisher, Maquet's name was left off the title page, and in return he received generous fees.

The collaboration with Dumas ended in 1851. Maquet went on to produce a large solo body of work in terms of historical romances, plays and an opera. In 1861, he became an officer of the Légion d'honneur. Maquet died comfortably well-off. He is buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
