La Poix de Fréminville, a sailor's destiny
By Sophie Muffat

Sophie Muffat loves history, the navy and incredible stories. After having told us about the fate of the Neslon and Villeneuve corpses in 2016, then the death of Decrès in 2017, she is leading this year the investigation of the hectic life of La Poix de Fréminville (1787-1848), naval officer, scholar ... and travesti. A joyful and erudite vision of maritime history.
