About Joseph Cange

  • Joseph Cange (Saarbourg, 19 September 1753 - ?) was a minor figure of the French Revolution. Cange was born to the family of a peasant.
  • He went on to serve as a clerk at Prison Saint-Lazare during the Reign of Terror. One day, he was sent to the wife and children of a prisoner, Monsieur George; moved by their miserable condition, he shared his money with them, claiming that the funds were sent by the prisoner.
  • George was freed at the Thermidorian Reaction and investigated to find the benefactor, eventually identifying Cange. The story came public, written into a play by Michel-Jean Sedaine, and reported before the National Convention, where the President declared "We applaud to Cange's generosity.
  • We like the virtue that characterises him".Cange became a popular figure, having his portrait made by Pierre-Nicolas Legrand de Lérant and four theatre plays written after the story.
