“Goodbye” Casanova – Died 4 June 1798

Giacomo Girolamo Casanova (2 April 1725 – 4 June 1798) was an Italian adventurer and author from the Republic of Venice.

Whilst writing, he often used pseudonyms, the most frequent being Chevalier de Seingalt. He also published in French under the name Jacques Casanova de Seingalt.

Due to his reputation for having many affairs with women, his name is now associated with being a  “womaniser”. He spent his last years in Bohemia as librarian to Count Waldstein, where he also wrote the story of his life.
