Gabriel Voisin was an aviation pioneer and the creator of Europe's first manned, engine-powered, heavier-than-air aircraft capable of a sustained, controlled flight, made by Henry Farman on January 13, 1908 near Paris, France. During World War I the company founded by Voisin became a major producer of military aircraft, notably the Voisin III. Subsequently, he switched to the design and production of luxury automobiles under the name Avions Voisin. Gabriel Voisin was born on February 5, 1880 at Belleville-sur-Saône, his brother Charles Voisin, two years younger than him, was his main childhood companion; when his father abandoned the family his mother, Amélie, took her sons to Neuville-sur-Saône, where they settled near her father's factory. Their grandfather, Charles Forestier, took charge of the boys' education with military rigor; the boys went for expeditions along the river, went fishing, built numerous contraptions. When his grandfather died, Gabriel was sent to school in Lyon and Paris where he learned industrial design, a field in which Voisin claims to have been exceptionally gifted.
He returned home, by the end of the century the brothers had built, among other things, a rifle, a steam boat and an automobile. After completing his studies at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Lyon in 1899, he joined an architectural firm in Paris. While in Paris he saw the Clément Ader Avion III, displayed at the Paris International Exposition of 1900; this awakened an interest in the problems of powered flight. After nine months of military service, in February 1904, he attended a lecture given by Captain Ferdinand Ferber, one of the leading figures in French aviation circles at the time. After the lecture Voisin approached Ferber and was given an introduction to Ernest Archdeacon, the leading promoter and financial supporter of early French aviation, Archdeacon hired him to test fly the Wright-type glider that he had had built; the tests took place at Berck-sur-Mer in April 1904, some short flights of around 20 m were achieved. Archdeacon commissioned Voisin to build another glider of similar design, but differing in having a fixed horizontal stabiliser behind the wings, in addition to its front-mounted elevator.
This was tested at Issy-les-Moulineaux on 26 March 1905 by towing it into the air using Archdeacon's automobile. The test was unmanned, the pilot's place being taken by 50 kg of ballast, since the aircraft suffered a structural failure and crashed, it was not rebuilt. Voisin designed and built a glider equipped with floats for Archdeacon; this aircraft marks the first use of Hargrave cells, used both for the wings. Voisin flew it on 8 June 1905, having been towed into the air behind a motor boat on the river Seine between the Billancourt and Sèvres bridges, managing a flight of about 600 m. While working on this aircraft Voisin had been approached by Louis Blériot, who asked him to build him a similar machine known as the Bleriot II; this differed principally in having a smaller span lower wing, resulting in the outer'side-curtains' between upper and lower wings being angled outwards. After this first flight Bleriot suggested to Voisin that they form a partnership to build aircraft, so Voisin ended his association with Archdeacon's syndicate.
Voisin attempted flights in both aircraft on 18 July 1905. Although the weather was unsuitable, with a strong crosswind, Voisin decided to attempt to fly the aircraft since it was difficult to obtain the necessary permission to use the river, he made a short flight in his own glider and attempted a flight in Bleriot's. This took off but Voisin could not control it and it crashed into the river. Voisin was lucky to escape drowning. Louis Bleriot's cine footage of this experiment survives in the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum; the next aircraft built by Voisin for Bleriot during 1906, the Bleriot III, was a tandem biplane powered by an Antoinette engine driving two tractor propellers with the wings formed into a closed ellipse as seen from the front: according to Voisin's account, Bleriot had wanted the lifting surfaces to be circular in front elevation, having experimented with models of this form, the adoption of their eventual form was the result of a compromise between the two men.
This aircraft was unsuccessful, as was its subsequent modification in which the forward wing was replaced by a conventional biplane arrangement and a second engine added. Experiments were made first with floats and with a wheeled undercarriage, the aircraft was wrecked in a taxying accident at Bagatelle on the morning of 12 November 1906; that day at Bagatelle, Alberto Santos-Dumont succeeded in flying his 14-bis canard biplane for a distance of over 100 metres. After the failure of this machine Voisin and Blériot dissolved their partnership, Voisin set up a company with his brother Charles Voisin to design and manufacture aircraft. Appareils d'Aviation Les Frères Voisin was the world's first commercial airplane factory. At this time aspiring European aviators were in fierce competition to be the first to achieve powered heavier-than-air flights; until Wilbur Wright's demonstrations at Le Mans in August 1908 many people did not believe the claims of the Wright brothers to have achieved sustained flights: for instance, that the Wrights' Flyer III had flown 24 miles in 39 minutes 23 seconds on October 5, 1905.
Santos-Dumont's flights in the 14-bis, in November 1906, were Europe's first observed and verified heavier-than-air powered flights. Despite its fame, all that the 14-bis could achieve was a short flight on a straight line. It
Catherine Monvoisin, or Montvoisin, née Deshayes, known as "La Voisin", was a French fortune teller, commissioned poisoner, professional provider of alleged sorcery. She was the head of a network of fortune tellers in Paris providing poison, abortion, purported magical services and the arranging of black masses, with clients among the aristocracy, became the central figure in the famous affaire des poisons, her purported organization of commissioned black magic and poison murder was suspected to have killed anywhere between 1000 and 2500 people. Catherine Deshayes married Antoine Monvoisin, active as a jeweler and a silk merchant with a shop at Pont-Marie in Paris; when her husband was ruined, La Voisin supported the family by practicing chiromancy and face-reading. In addition to being a fortune teller, she was active as a midwife, which developed into providing abortions, her business as a fortune teller developed into manufacturing and selling purported magical objects and potions, arranging black masses and selling aphrodisiacs and poison to profit from her clients' wishes upon their future.
From the late 1660s, La Voisin had became a wealthy and famous fortune teller with clients among the highest aristocracy of France. Among her clients where Olympia Mancini, comtesse de Soissons, she resided at the Villeneuve-sur-Gravois, where she received her clients all day, entertained the Parisian upper class society at parties with violin music in her garden at night. La Voisin attended service at the church of the Jansenist abbé de Sant-Amour, principal of the Paris University, the godmother of her daughter was the noblewoman Mme de la Roche-Guyon, she supported a family of six, including her mother and her children. She was known to have at least six lovers: the executioner Andre Guillaume, Monsieur Latour, vicomte de Cousserans, the count de Labatie, the alchemist Blessis, the architect Fauchet and the magician Adam Lesage. At one point, Adam Lesage tried to induce her to kill her husband, but while he was successful, she changed her mind and aborted the process. La Voisin was interested in science and alchemy and financed several private projects and enterprises, some of them concocted by con artists who tried to swindle her.
She was known to suffer from alcoholism, was abused by Latour, engaged in several conflicts with her rival, the poisoner Marie Bosse. La Voisin started to include abortions, illegal at the time, for profit within her services as a midwife, her clients included wealthy members of the aristocracy, she had a network of abortion providers working for her, notably Catherine Lepère, who stated that she received her clients from La Voisin, who referred clients to her and took the majority of the profit as fee. Marie Bosse claimed that fetuses, aborted late in the pregnancy, were burned in a furnace at the house of La Voisin and buried in the garden of La Voisin, but as Louis XIV gave the order that the part of La Voisin's enterprise which had to do with abortions should not be pursued further, this part of her business is the least investigated and unknown one, the claims of Marie Bosse therefore remain unconfirmed. La Voisin said about her activity as a fortune teller, that she had used and developed what God had given her.
She stated that she was taught the art of fortune telling at the age of nine, that after her husband became ruined, she decided to profit by it. She developed her art by studying the modern methods of physiology, the art of reading the client's future by studying their faces and hands, she spent a great deal of money in order to provide an atmosphere which would make her clients more inclined to believe her prophecies: for example, she had a special robe of crimson red velvet embroidered with eagles in gold made for a price of 1,500 livres to perform in. In 1665 or 1666, her divination was questioned by the Congregation of the Mission at the Saint Vincent de Paul's order and she was called for questioning, but La Voisin defended herself before the professors at Sorbonne university and was allowed to continue her business as a fortune teller, her business as a fortune teller developed in to a business of professional alleged black magic. During her activity as a fortune teller, she noticed similarities among her clients wishes about their future: all wanted to have someone fall in love with them.
La Voisin decided to profit financially off of her clients' wishes by offering services of purported magic to make their wishes come true. She told her clients that their wish would come true if it was the will of God. Secondly, she started to recommend to her clients some action that would make their dreams come true; these actions were to visit the church of some particular saint. For those clients who wished for someone to fall in love with them, she manufactured love powders: the bones of toads, the teeth of moles, Spanish fly, iron filings, human blood and mummy, the dust of human remains were among the alleged ingredients of the love powders concocted by La Voisin, her most radical and expensive recommended practices were the black mass, which she arranged for clients for profit, during which the client could pray to Satan for their wish to come true. During at least some of these masses, a woman performed as an a

Aéroplanes Voisin was a French aircraft manufacturing company established in 1905 by Gabriel Voisin and his brother Charles, was continued by Gabriel after Charles died in an automobile accident in 1912. During World War I, it was a major producer of military aircraft, notably the Voisin III. After the war Gabriel Voisin abandoned the aviation industry, set up a company to design and produce luxury automobiles, called Avions Voisin. Gabriel Voisin had been employed by Ernest Archdeacon to work on the construction of gliders and entered into partnership with Louis Blériot, to form the company Ateliers d' Aviation Edouard Surcouf, Blériot et Voisin in 1905. Following a disagreement, Gabriel Voisin bought out Blériot and on 5 November 1906 established the Appareils d'Aviation Les Frères Voisin with his brother Charles; the company, based in the Parisian suburb of Billancourt, was the first commercial aircraft factory in the world. It created Europe's first manned, heavier-than-air powered aircraft capable of a sustained, controlled flight, including take-off and landing, the Voisin-Farman I.
Having learned to fly with a Voisin, on 8 March 1910, Raymonde de Laroche became the first woman to receive a pilot licence when the Aero-Club of France issued her licence #36 of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale. In South Africa, on 28 December 1909, French aviator M. Albert Kimmerling made the first manned, heavier-than-air powered flight in Africa in a Voisin 1907 biplane. Like many early aircraft companies, Voisin built machines to the designs of their customers which helped support their own experiments; the company's first customers were a M. Florencie, who commissioned them to build an ornithopter he had designed, Henri Kapferer, for whom they built a pusher biplane of their own design; the latter was underpowered, having a Buchet engine of only 20 hp, it failed to fly. However, Kapferer introduced them to Leon Delagrange, for whom they built a similar machine, powered by a 50 hp Antoinette engine; this was first flown by Charles Voisin on 30 March 1907, achieving a straight-line flight of 60 m.
In turn Delagrange introduced them to Henri Farman. These two aircraft are referred to by their owners' names as the Voisin-Delagrange No.1 and the Voisin-Farman No.1, were the foundation of the company's success. On 13 January 1908 Farman used his aircraft to win the "Grand Prix de l'aviation" offered by Ernest Archdeacon and Henry Deutsch de la Meurthe for the first closed-circuit flight of over a kilometer. Since the Wright Brothers would provide no evidence of their own accomplishments, they were disbelieved at the time, so this was a major breakthrough in the conquest of the air, brought Voisin many orders for similar aircraft. Around sixty would be built. 1907 Voisin 1907 biplane 1909 Voisin TractorOnly one built.1910 Voisin Type de Course 1910 Voisin Type Militaire 1910 Type Bordeaux 1911 Voisin CanardTail first pusher design flown as a landplane but fitted with floats.

Production of the Voisin III Type LA and LAS increased with the outbreak of the First World War, with examples being built under licence in Italy by S. I. T. in Russia by Anatra, Breshnev-Moller, Dux Lebedev and Schetinin, in the UK by Savages of King's Lynn, with production exceeding 1,350 airframes. Examples would be used by the Belgian and Romanian Air Services, a few survived the war to be used in the Ukraine, in Russia.
Soon after the outbreak of the First World War, it became apparent that the French aviation industry could not produce aircraft in sufficient numbers to meet military requirements. Manufacturers from various other fields became aviation subcontractors, license-builders as did many smaller aircraft manufacturers, unable to secure orders for their own designs. By 1918, Voisin was involved with the Voisin-Lafresnaye company, a major constructor of airframes, the Voisin-Lefebvre company, a major builder of aircraft engines; the Voisin III was followed by a small number of the 37mm cannon armed Voisin IV Type LB and Type LBS, were the only wartime designs with staggered wings. The B in the factory designations indicate that the airframe was equipped with a cannon, although some had it removed in service; the S indicates. Three hundred of the improved Voisin V Type LAS aircraft followed; the Voisin VI Type LAS was a development of the V fitted with a 155 hp Salmson radial, of which only around 50 were built despite the improved performance as the basic type was considered to be obsolete.
The larger Type LC, Voisin VII, followed in 1916 with the engine cooling radiators moved to the nose, but was not a success as it was badly underpowered and only a hundred of these were buil
Marie Taglioni, Comtesse de Voisins was a Swedish ballet dancer of the Romantic ballet era, a central figure in the history of European dance. She was one of the most celebrated ballerinas of the romantic ballet, cultivated at Her Majesty's Theatre in London, at the Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique of the Paris Opera Ballet, she is credited with being the first ballerina to dance en pointe. Taglioni was born in Stockholm, Sweden, to Italian choreographer Filippo Taglioni and Swedish ballet dancer Sophie Karsten, maternal granddaughter of the Swedish opera singer Christoffer Christian Karsten and of the Polish opera singer and actress Sophie Stebnowska, her brother, was a dancer and an influential choreographer. Taglioni was married to Comte Auguste Gilbert de Voisins on 14 July 1832, but separated in 1836, she fell in love with Eugene Desmares, a loyal fan, who had defended her honour in a duel. Desmares and Taglioni gave birth to a child in 1836. Three years Desmares died in a hunting accident.
In 1842 she gave birth to her second child. It is unknown who the father is though the birth certificate states the father as Gilbert de Voisins. Taglioni's children's names were Eugenie-Marie-Edwige. Taglioni moved to Vienna with her family at a young age where she began her ballet training under the direction of Jean-Francois Coulon and her father. After Filippo was appointed the ballet master at the court opera in Vienna there was a decision that Marie would debut in the Habsburg capital. Though Marie had trained with Coulon, her technique was not up to the standards that would impress the Viennese audiences, her father created a rigorous six-month training regimen for his daughter where she would hold positions for 100 counts. The training was conducted daily and consisted of two hours in the morning with difficult exercises focusing on her legs and two hours in the afternoon focusing on adagio movements that would help her refine poses in ballet. Taglioni had a rounded back that caused her to lean forward and had distorted proportions.
She worked hard to disguise her physical limitations by increasing range of motion and developing her strength. Taglioni focused her energy on her shape and form to the audience and less on bravura tricks and pirouettes. In Vienna, Marie danced her first ballet choreographed by her father titled "La Reception d'une Jeune Nymphe à la Cour de Terpsichore". Before joining the Paris Opéra, Taglioni danced in both Munich and Stuttgart, at age 23 debuted in another ballet choreographed by her father called "La Sicilien" that jump-started her ballet career. Taglioni rose to fame as a danseuse at the Paris Opéra when her father created the ballet La Sylphide for her. Designed as a showcase for Taglioni's talent, it was the first ballet where dancing en pointe had an aesthetic rationale and was not an acrobatic stunt involving ungraceful arm movements and exertions, as had been the approach of dancers in the late 1820s. In 1837 Taglioni left the Ballet of Her Majesty's Theatre to take up a three-year contract in Saint Petersburg with the Imperial Ballet.
It was in Russia after her last performance in the country and at the height of the "cult of the ballerina", that a pair of her pointe shoes were sold for two hundred rubles to be cooked, served with a sauce and eaten by a group of balletomanes. In July 1845, she danced with Lucile Grahn, Carlotta Grisi, Fanny Cerrito in Jules Perrot's Pas de Quatre, a ballet representing Taglioni’s ethereal qualities, based on Alfred Edward Chalon’s lithographic prints. Pas de Quatre was choreographed to be presented to Queen Victoria. Taglioni retired from performing in 1847; when the ballet of the Paris Opéra was reorganized on stricter, more professional lines, she was its guiding spirit. With the director of the new Conservatoire de danse, Lucien Petipa, Petipa's former pupil, the choreographer Louis Mérante, she figured on the six-member select jury of the first annual competition for the corps de ballet, held 13 April 1860, her only choreographic work was Le papillon for her student Emma Livry, remembered for dying in 1863 when her costume was set alight by a gas lamp used for stage lighting.
Johann Strauss II composed the "Marie Taglioni Polka" in honour of Marie Taglioni's niece, Marie "Paul" Taglioni known as "Marie the Younger". The two women, having the same name, have been conflated, or confused with each other. In England, she taught social dance and ballroom to children and society ladies in London, she resided at #14 Connaught Square, London from 1875 to 1876. Taglioni died in Marseille on 22 April 1884, the day before her 80th birthday, her body was moved to Paris. There is some debate over whether she is buried in Montmartre or in Père Lachaise, or if the grave Montmartre site belongs to her mother; the local dancers began leaving their worn pointe shoes on the Montmartre grave as a tribute and thanks to the first pointe dancer.
