Marcel Jacques Amand Romain Boulenger[1] (Paris, 9 September 1873 – Chantilly, Oise, 21 May 1932) was a French novelist and fencer who competed in fencing in the late 19th century and early 20th century.


As an author he is primarily known for his pastiches and his many faux "autobiographies" of imaginary persons. Two examples are Souvenirs du marquis de Floranges (1811-1834) (1923), and Le Duc de Morny, prince franc̦ais (1925).[2]


He participated in Fencing at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris and won the bronze medal in the foil.[3] He was defeated by fellow French fencer Henri Masson in the semi-final. Twelve years later he participated in the art competition at the Summer Olympics in Stockholm.
