Charles Mouhot

Charles Mouhot (1828 - 1904) was a younger brother of Henri Alexandre Mouhot, famous French explorer who gave a vivid description of Angkor in 1859.

Just a year after Henri Mouhot´s death in Laos in 1861, Charles Mouhot completed the English translation of his brother´s travelogue, based on Henri´s personal notes and his letters to Charles as well as to Henri´s wife, Anne (Annette) Mouhot nee Park.

Charles Mouhot´s own wife, Jane Elizabeth Mary (Jenny) Mouhot nee Park (1831, London - ?), was a cousin of Annette, and both were related to illustrious Scottish explorer Mungo Park, a specialist of West Africa.
