Beaumarchais and Comte de Ribes - division 28 Pere-Lachaise - then and now

Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais (1732–1799) was a French playwright, watchmaker, inventor, musician, diplomat, fugitive, spy, publisher, horticulturalist, arms dealer, satirist, financier, and revolutionary (both French and American).

It is unclear as to where Beaumarchais was originally buried when he died in 1799. Eventually, however, he was reinterred in division 28, near the Comte de Ribes.
