Not you too, Nodier!

I should probably be less surprised by now:

"Robespierre avoit pour sécretaire, à l'époque de sa mort, un jeune homme nommé Duplay, fils de son hôte le menuisier, et dont on prétend qu'il avoit secrètement épousé la soeur."

("Robespierre had for secretary, at the time of his death, a young man named Duplay, the son of his host the cabinetmaker, and whose sister they say he had secretly married.")

To get an idea of the plausibility of the final assertion, you would do well not note that Simon Duplay was not Maurice Duplay's son, but his nephew, and that he wasn't actually (contrary to popular belief) Robespierre's secretary either (more on that later).
