James Harden-Hickey (born James Aloysius Harden on December 8, 1854 in San Francisco and died February 9, 1898 in El Paso) was a French-American writer, proclaimed sovereign prince of Trinidad, South America, under the name James I. Overthrew by the British, he committed suicide in exile in 1898.

The life of this Irish-American royalist was almost as incredible as that of his hero. He converted to Buddhism, proclaimed himself king of Trinidad, and then attempted to invade England from Ireland... Knowing this, we will read differently the crazy adventures of the Nosebreaker
