Both Francisque Poulbot's parents were lecturers. He was a fine draughtsman and from 1900 onwards his drawings appeared in the press. He lived in Montmartre where he married Léona Ondernard (1881-1958) in February 1914 before he left to the war front. They had no children. He was dismissed from the army in the next year and produced patriotic posters.
In 1920 he was one of the founders of the République de Montmartre, a philanthropic organsation. His patriotic posters from the First World War led to his house arrest under the German occupation during the Second World War. He died at his house in Montmartre in 1946.
