Charles Pertusier (1779-1836), a polytechnician and later a mounted artillery officer in the Imperial Guard, was sent to Venetian Dalmatia in 1808 where he served as an artillery captain and studied the literature and antiquities of that country. From 1812 to 1814 he was assigned to the service of the French Embassy in Constantinople as aide-de-camp to General Andreossy. During this period he visited the Islands of the Princes, an archipelago of nine islands in the Sea of Marmara south-east of Istanbul.Blackmer, 1292; Atabey, 941
