25/02/2013

| $5 - $8

’Tout le monde en France est corrigé, excepté La Fayette : vous le voyez tranquille, eh bien! Je vous dis, moi, qu’il est prêt à recommencer. ’

These words are from the Emperor of France Napoléon I, talking about Gilbert du Motier, marquis de la Fayette (1757-1834). Others before him, including Mirabeau, had noticed the marquis’ taste for independence and freedom. From his native Auvergne to the American War of Independence, from the French Revolution to the July Monarchy, discover the dazzling career of this exceptional man.
