The boundaries between fact and fiction in the public arena can become notoriously ill-defined. Take the example of Sherlock Holmes. A 2011 poll with a sample size of 1,000 uncovered that 21% of people believed he was a real, historical figure. By a similar process but in reverse Casanova has become fictionalised.

Histoire de ma Vie

The story behind Casanova's memoirs and the creation of the Casanova myth

Dux Castle, Bohemia (the present day Czech Republic) where Casanova spent the final years of his life. Effectively in exile from Venice for a second time, aging, homeless, unemployed, not in the best of health and resentful at the failure of the literary world to take this overreaching son of an actress seriously, Casanova was offered the position of librarian by Count Joseph Charles de Waldstein.

The year after the fall of his beloved Venice to Napoleon, Casanova died 4th June, 1798 at the castle of Dux, his autobiography beside him. Carlo Angiolini, Casanova’s nephew-in-law, organised his burial and it was he who now inherited the many volumes of loose manuscript that comprised 'Histoire de ma vie'.
