Alfred de Musset, George Sand, and Norma Tessum Onda, St Maurice, La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime (17), France

Norma Tessum Onda's grave is in St Maurice cemetery, near La Rochelle, France. Much has been said about this grave, and she is considered by many to be a product of the relationship between Alfred de Musset and George Sand: 'Norma' is an anagram of 'roman' ('novel' in English), 'Tessum' is 'Musset' in reverse, and 'Onda' is almost an anagram of 'Sand'. Perhaps most important of all, the date of birth tallies with the Musset-Sand relationship.
