Description

Salle d'Armes Cain was founded by Gatechair, veteran of the First Empire and former president of l'Academie d'Armes. The salle was located on the passageway to the Opéra Le Peletier, site of Felice Orsini's January 14, 1858 assassination attempt of Napolean Bonaparte. Gatechair and his pupils came out into the passage in full fencing equipment to the sound of the explosions. Monsieur Caïn took over the salle in 1874 and trained such notable figures as Guy de Maupassant, Prince Yuryevsky, son of Csar Alexander II, and Marguerite Ugalde, french mezzo-soprano who sang the first D’Artagnan in the opera Les Petits Mousquetaires.
