So, this guy: Pierre Wantzel, had solved the problem of trisection, in 1837, before Galois. His solution, though, did not attract any attention at all, until 50 years later, when it was casually republished. Only probably 50 or more years later people understood the algebraic importance of it.

So there.

In 1837 Galois was already dead for 5 years.

Galois has never published a rigorous proof related to the trisection problem. His ideas were incredibly great and immensely inspirational, but they were worked out into real proofs by few dozen of others including Wantzel. Wanzel's proof is inspired by Galois/Abel approach and is really _the_ first paper where a rigorous proof appears.
