Max O'Rell was the pen name of Leon Paul Blouet (March 2, 1848 – 25 May 1903), French author and journalist.
He was born in Brittany. He served as a cavalry officer in the Franco-German War, was captured at Sedan, but was released 
in time to join theVersaillist army which overcame the Paris Commune, and was severely wounded during the second siege of 
Paris. In 1872 he went to England as correspondent of several French newspapers, and in 1876 became the very efficient 
French master at St Paul's School, London, retaining that post until 1884. What induced him to leave was the brilliant 
success of his first book, John Bull et son ile (translated as John Bull and his Island), which in its French and English 
forms was so widely read as to make his pseudonym a household word in England and America.everal other volumes of a 
similar type dealing in a like spirit with Scotland, America and France followed. He married an Englishwoman, who 
translated his books. But the main work of the years between 1890 and 1900 was lecturing. Max O'Rell was a ready and 
amusing speaker, and his easy manner and his humorous gift made him very successful on the platform. He lectured often in 
the United Kingdom and still more often in America. He died in Paris, where he was acting as correspondent of the New York 
Journal, in May 1903.
