Victor Arnaud 1807? - 1869 was a prestigious French homeopath and President of the Homeopathic Medical Society of France.

Arnaud was present at the International Homeopathic Congress in Paris in 1867. Arnaud’s name is inscribed on the laurel crown of the bust of Samuel Hahnemann.

Arnaud practiced at 33, rue Gioffredo, Nice, and in Paris.

Arnaud was a colleague of Simon Felix Camille Croserio, Paul Francois Curie, A J Davet, Frederick Hervey Foster Quin, and Leon Francois Adolphe Simon.

In the British journal of Homeopathy is the following:

“We have to record the death of one of the French veterans of Homoeopathy. Dr. Arnaud was once a President of the Homeopathic Medical Society of France, and was well known as an enthusiastic Homeopathist and most successful practitioner.

His death occurred November 13, 1869. His remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends and colleagues. (Bib. Hom. Genève, Vol. 3, 286. Brit. Jour. Hom., 28, p. 415)

Armand Jacques Leroy de Saint Arnaud 1801 - 1854 was a French soldier and Marshal of France during the 19th century. He served as French Minister of War until the Crimean War when he became Commander in Chief of the army of the East.

In 1853, Marshal St. Arnaud was restored to health by homeopath Alexandre Charge, the homeopath of Napoleon III. In gratitude, Marshal St. Arnaud established a Chair of Homeopathy in the Faculty of Medicine in the University of Paris. Marshal St Arnaud became an ardent advocate of homeopathy, and employed Cabrol to be the homeopathic physician to his troops during a cholera outbreak at Alms.
