History : Thanks to the experiments of François-Emmanuel Verguin, the dark purple red substance (that he called "fuchsin" after the name of the fushsia flower) has been created. A few years later, we discovered in England a chemically identical dye : the roséine. But it is under the commercial name of Magenta that this color became popular because of the battle of the same name which took place in 1859.
