Henry I, Duke of Guise, 1580, and Francis de Montmorency, 1576 (1882-1884). Artist: Unknown

Henry I, Duke of Guise, 1580, and Francis de Montmorency, 1576 (1882-1884). Guise as a general of infantry, and Montmorency as Marshal of France. Henry (1550-1588) was the founder of the Catholic League and a prominent figure on the Catholic side in the French Wars of Religion. He was one of the instigators of the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre of Protestants in 1572. The Montmorency family were rivals of the Guises. Francis (1530-1579) was made a Marshal of France in 1559. He was a cousin of Gaspard de Coligny, the Protestant leader killed in the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre. He was appointed to court by King Charles IX in 1574 but was compelled to leave due to the hatred between himself and Guise. A print from La France et les Francais a Travers les Siecles, Volume III, F Roy editor, A Challamel, Saint-Antoine, 1882-1884.

Charles Alexandre de Calonne and Lomenie de Brienne, French statemen, 18th century (1882-1884).Artist: Pannemaker

Charles Alexandre de Calonne and Lomenie de Brienne, French statemen, 18th century (1882-1884). Calonne (1734-1802) was Controller-General of Finances under Louis XVI from 1783-1787. France's finances were in a disastrous state and Calonne attempted to bring in a series of taxes and other measures intended to replenish the royal treasury. He failed to have his proposals implemented due to opposition from the assembly of notables and was dismissed, reluctantly, by the king, who supported his proposals. The failure to implement Calonne's financial reforms is seen by some historians as having been an important catalyst in the downfall of the monarchy in the French Revolution. Etienne Charles de Lomenie de Brienne (1727-1794) succeeded Calonne as finance minister in 1787, but was no more able to get reforms accepted than his predecessor and was compelled to resign the following year. Although he swore the civic oath required by the revolutionary constitution after the French Revolution, his status under the Ancien Regime made him the subject of suspicion and he was arrested in 1793 and died in prison the following year. A print from La France et les Francais a Travers les Siecles, Volume III, F Roy editor, A Challamel, Saint-Antoine, 1882-1884.
