Bouillé, Marquis de

Bouillé, Marquis de, a French general, born in Auvergne, distinguished in the Seven Years' War, in the West Indies and during the Revolution; “last refuge of royalty in all straits”; favoured the flight of Louis XVI.; a “quick, choleric, sharp-discerning, stubbornly-endeavouring man, with suppressed-explosive resolution, with valour, nay, headlong audacity; muzzled and fettered by diplomatic pack-threads,... an intrepid, adamantine man”; did his utmost for royalty, failed, and quitted France; died in London, and left “Memoirs of the French Revolution” (1759-1800). See for the part he played in it, Carlyle'sFrench Revolution.”
