Biographical data
Name: Saint-Elme-le-Duc  
   Also known as: Jean Pierre Elme Leduc; Saint-Elme Leduc
Born: 1795
Died: 20 Nov. 1861
 
Notes:
According to Dominique Thimognier (personal communication), 'Saint-Elme-le-Duc' was a pseudonym and his real name was Jean Pierre Elme Leduc. Since he was known in the chess world only by the pseudonym, I list him here under that name. Thimognier also provided me with his date of death (20-11-1861) and age at death (66), from which one can deduce that he was born between 30-11-1794 and 29-11-1795.
