A member of Napoleón Bonaparte's Imperial Guard, Second Lieutenant Arnaldo Pellet Gallibert, lived and died in Matanzas, western Cuba.
Investigator Adrián Álvarez narrates that the local paper Aurora del Yumuri, published in the 17th century, reported that Pellet Gallibert, born in Carcasona, France, was buried in the San Juan de Dios Cemetery, 100 kilometers east of Havana, on April 22, 1871, at the age of 78.
The source did not disclose the motives for Gallibert's arrival and residence in Cuba nor what he lived on, but the obituary says his friends described him as "an honorable and brave militaryman and exemplary father."
Gallibert was second lieutenant in the elite troops of Bonaparte (born in Ajaccio on August 15, 1769, and died in St. Helen, May 5, 1821), as a military genius in the history of humankind.
Pellet Gallibert participated in important campaigns like those in Russia and Leipzig (Germany), added the specialist.
