To be sure, I am less qualified in French than the above respondents!

But, I think that a more natural-sounding version of l_raty's translation of the final sentence would be "The individual depicted was sent to us by M. Florent Prevost, and it was named in honour of a Mexican cacique, who was made famous by history."

Of course, if you are just going to be translating into Swedish, the precise English phaseology is not very important...
