Beware the little ones.

Richeborg, a dwarf who was raised as a servant of the Orleans family in eighteenth-century France and who stood 23 inches high at maturity, was employed by the aristocracy as a secret agent during the French Revolution. Disguised as an infant and wrapped in swaddling clothes, Richeborg was taken in and out of Paris in the arms of his “nurse”, all the while carrying crucial secret dispatches. Richeborg died in Paris at slightly less than a hundred years of age.
