French ambassador at Portugal court Jean Nicot in 1560 has sent a little of tobacco to queen Catherine Medici, recommending it as migraine remedy. Soon after this vogue for snuff tobacco has spread thorough entire France. In Nicot honor plant got Latin name Nicotiana, but alkaloid extracted from it at the beginning of 19th century - correspondingly "nicotine".
