The Black Tulip is a historical novel and a work of Romantic poetry written by Alexandre Dumas.
It begins with a historical event; the 1672 lynching by Orangists of the Dutch Grand Pensionary, Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelis, because they were considered rebels against the stadtholder William of Orange.
During these events there was Tulip mania across the Netherlands. In this scenarios, the main fictional character Cornelius Van Baerle, belonged to the natural school, whose motto was: "To despise flowers is to offend God"
The city of Haarlem had set the prize of 100,000 Francs to whom could grow a black tulip. At stake was not only the money, but also fame and honour. Also, the gardener would perpetuate his name in history by the tulip's recorded name.
