Heinrich Heine

Christian Johann Heinrich Heine (December 13, 1797 - February 17, 1856) was a German poet.

Heine was born into a Jewish family in Düsseldorf, Germany and emigrated to Paris, France in 1830, staying there until his death. He is especially noted for his lyric poetry, with much of it being set to music by lieder composers, most notably Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann.

He died in Paris and was interred in the Cimetière de Montmartre.
