Candide

  

by Voltaire

Candide Chapter 26 Summary

  • While dining at an inn one evening, Cacambo shows up.
  • Cacambo explains that he has become a slave and that Cunégonde is in Constantinople. He then suggests that they peace the hell out, sooner rather than later.
  • Candide dines with Martin and six strangers, all of whom are revealed to be dethroned kings. As expected, they all tell their stories.
