Question 524: Move Over Casanova




This famous philanderer and con artist is considered as the original master of disguise. Even though he was mostly occupied with women and scams, he occasionally lent his expertise to the police to aid them in their pursuit of his fellow tradesmen. He is credited with founding the worlds first criminal agency and as the father of criminology. He was renowned for for his uncanny knack for dressing up like a woman, a skill he originally developed to accompany his slightly older and unhappily married mistresses on family vacations when he was young. His account of his rather colorful life should be made required reading for all of us who frequents a quiz blogs. And needless to say he was French.

Name the guy
