Who was Étienne Saint-Dennis?

Étienne “Ali” Saint-Dennis was a French-spoken servant. It is not much I know about him other than single anecdotes. I am not even sure about his ethnicity. But I know his nickname did not have directly with his origin to do. He was Napoleone Buonaparte’s personal servant the last six years of his life. 19 years after Napoleone’s death he was one of those present when the grave on Saint Helena was opened. Much more than that I don't know.
