The article is devoted to the French intelligence officer Henri de Verthamon, the participant of the «Lockhart’s plot», who was condemned to death by the Soviet Revolutionary Tribunal because of anti-Soviet activity. Nowadays, the person of de Verthamon was not fixedly considered either in russian or foreign historiography, therefore the French secret-service agent continued to be a shadow of the «Lockhart’s plot». The research is based on the sources of archives of the French Ministry of Defense and of the French Foreign Ministry. The author reconstructs the professional career of Henri de Verthamon, the activity of his mission in Soviet russia in 1918 and his communications with the anti-Soviet underground. So, it is not quite correct to connect the operations of Henri de Verthamon with the so-called «Lockhart’s plot», also the failure both of his mission and the French special services during the confrontation with the Cheka was one of the reasons to block their activities in russia in the next decade.
