Zijn populairste werk, De leeuw van Vlaanderen, werd bijna een eeuw later verfilmd door Hugo Claus.Naast schrijver was hij ook bestuurder, griffier, redacteur, arrondissementscommissaris en conservator van musea.Hendrik Conscience was een zoon van de Antwerpse ongeletterde Cornelia Balieu, en van Pierre Conscience, afkomstig uit Besançon.

Nevertheless, he acquired a primary teaching certificate at the young age of 19 and began teaching in Carpentras whilst pursuing further studies. In 1849 he was appointed to a teaching post in Ajaccio (Corsica), then in 1853 moved on to the lycée in Avignon.Fabre was a popular teacher, physicist, chemist and botanist.
