Jan Potocki, a Polish historian, archeologist, and short-story writer, was born into the Polish aristocracy. Highly educated, he was fluent in French and regarded it as his second language. He served as an adviser to Catherine the Great and Alexander I, who appointed him head of a scientific mission to China in 1805.
