Francois La Rochefoucauld

a.k.a. Prince de Marsillac, Francois Duc de La Rochefoucauld

Author Code: FFDR

Born: Sep. 15, 1615 - Paris, France

Died: Mar. 11, 1680 - Paris, France

The son of a nobleman, Rochefoucauld was educated at home and entered the army when he was sixteen. He took part in a number of battles including the siege of Cassel. Eventually becoming a courtier at the court of Louis XIII, he was involved in plots against Richelieu and was banished to his father's estate at Blois. Later, he was imprisoned in the Bastile for a time before again being banished to his chateau at Vertueil. There he continued to plot until the death of Richelieu in 1650 allowed him to return to court. He joined in the Fronde revolts of 1648-53 and was seriously wounded at the siege of Paris. In 1661, after the death of Mazarin, he again returned to court. In 1664, he published his memoirs which were so offensive to many that he subsequently denied being its author. In 1668, he published Reflexions, ou sentences et maximes morales, a series of maxims which showed his conciseness and precision of expression. Other works include Reflexions Diverses
