Victor Arnaud (1807? – 13 November 1869) was a veteran French homeopath and President of the Homeopathic Medical Society of France.

Arnaud was present at the International Homeopathic Congress in Paris in 1867. Arnaud’s name is inscribed on the laurel crown of the bust of Samuel Hahnemann.

Arnaud practiced in Paris.

Arnaud was a colleague of Simon Felix Camille Croserio, Paul Francois Curie, A. J. Davet, Frederick Hervey Foster Quin, and Léon Francois Adolphe Simon.

In the British Journal of Homeopathy is the following:

“We have to record the death of one of the French veterans of Homoeopathy. Dr. Arnaud was once a President of the Homeopathic Medical Society of France, and was well known as an enthusiastic Homeopathist and most successful practitioner.

His death occurred November 13, 1869. His remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends and colleagues. (Bib. Hom. Genève, Vol. 3, 286. Brit. Jour. Hom., 28, p. 415)

Arnaud contributed a number of articles to French homeopathic publications.

Of interest:

Armand Jacques Leroy de Saint-Arnaud (1801 – 1854) was a French soldier and Marshal of France during the 19th century. He served as French Minister of War until the Crimean War when he became Commander in Chief of the army of the East.

In 1853, Marshal St. Arnaud was restored to health by homeopath Alexandre Chargé, the homeopath of Napoleon III. In gratitude, Marshal St. Arnaud offered to establish a Chair of Homeopathy in the Faculty of Medicine in the University of Paris. Marshal St Arnaud became an ardent advocate of homeopathy, and employed Dr Jean Franc̜ois Hyacinthe Bernard Cabrol to be the homeopathic physician to his troops during a cholera outbreak at Varna.

Another Dr Arnaud is listed in the American Institute of Homeopathy‘s 1925 Directory of Homeopathic Physicians as practicing at 33, Rue Gioffredo, Nice.
