Mirabeau, Victor Riquetti, Marquis de (17161783)

Mirabeau, Victor Riquetti, Marquis de, “crabbed old friend of men,” born at Pertuis, in Provence, claimed to be of Florentine descent; “could never make the world go to his mind,” and set about reforming it by coercing a family as self-willed as himself, to the driving of his celebrated son to desperate courses and reckless excesses; advocated the doctrines of the French economists in a series of writings instinct with a certain theoretical philanthropy (17161783).
