QUENU, the half-brother of Florent. After the death of his mother, he
was taken to Paris by Florent, who supported him by teaching. He was at
first idle and unsettled, but after Florent's arrest he was taken in by
his uncle Gradelle, to whose business of pork-butcher, as well as to a
considerable sum of money, he ultimately succeeded. After his uncle's
death he married Lisa Macquart, who had previously assisted in the shop,
and they had a daughter, Pauline. Business prospered, and the Quenus
were soon in a position to remove to larger premises. Florent on his
return from exile was kindly received by Quenu, who later on took no
part in the efforts made by his wife to induce his brother to leave
voluntarily. He was ignorant of his wife's action with reference to the
subsequent arrest of Florent. Le Ventre de Paris.

He died of apoplexy in 1863, six months after the death of his wife,
leaving a will under which M. Chanteau, his cousin became the guardian
of his daughter Pauline. La Joie de Vivre.
