NGC - Coin of the Day: On July 11, 1791, the National Assembly of France had Voltaire's remains brought back to Paris to be enshrined in the Panthéon. A million people are estimated to have attended the procession, which stretched throughout Paris. France honored him with a 1994 5 Francs coin.

One of my great grandfathers, his father and his grandfather, all had Voltaire as their middle name.

I've always wondered if they were related to the great Voltaire.
