      Description

      In MySQL Latin-1 is an alias to cp1252. Meanwhile the standard (e.g. python) Latin-1 is ISO-8859-1.
      The problem gets bigger when accents and apostrophe occurs and you use a stick decode (default method in python mysql library).
      Here is a detailed explanation: https://www.i18nqa.com/debug/table-iso8859-1-vs-windows-1252.html

      Solution: add ISO-8859-1 charset and maybe change the documentation to avoid confusion.
      Thanks

      This is a duplicated issue from mysql: https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=101556
