Bernard Marius Cazeneuve (October 12, 1839 - April 14, 1913) was a French magician that performed as "Commander Cazeneuve".
He distinguished himself in mathematics and physics, but after witnessing a performance of the Bartolomeo Bosco, he adopted magic as a profession. He became an expert in mind-reading experiments and card tricks. In the early 1880s, he and his wife performed their Second Sight trick at the Court of Russia.
He served as a captain when the Franco-Prussian war broke out, but afterward resumed performing and toured Europe, United States, South America and Algeria. Cazeneuve performed for the royalty in Belgium, Greece, France, Italy, Russia, Spain and Persia.
In his later years he became distinguished as an astronomer and died in Toulouse.
