Comte d'Estaing History:
JEAN-BAPTISTE-CHARLES-HENRI-HECTOR, COMTE D'ESTAING
(MARQUIS DE SAILLANS) was a French admiral, b. 28 November, 1729 at the
chateau de Ravel (Auvergne) d. 28 April, 1794 Paris
He first served in the army as a colonel of infantry. In 1757, having obtained
the rank of brigadier-general, he went to the East Indies, with Lally-Tollendal.
Made a prisoner at the siege of Madras (1759), he was set free on parole,
entered the service of the French East Indian Company, and (with two vessels)
destroyed the British factories in Sumatra and the Persian Gulf. He was on his
way to France, in 1760, when he fell into the hands of the English and was sent
to Plymouth. Released a second time, he was appointed lieutenant-general of
the navy in 1763, and vice-admiral in 1777. One year later, he left Toulon in
command of a fleet of twelve battleships and fourteen frigates with the intention
of assisting the struggling American colonies against Great Britain. Unfavourable
winds delayed him and so Admiral Howe's fleet escaped his pursuit and d'Estaing
took possession of Newport (8 August). A great naval battle was about to take place,
when a violent storm arose and dispersed the two fleets. After a short sojourn in
Boston harbour, he sailed to the West Indies where he took St. Vincent and
Grenada (4 July, 1779) and badly damaged Admiral Byron's fleet. His attempts
to retake Savannah, in concert with the Americans, were unsuccessful; a severe
wound obliged him to give up the enterprise. On his return to France, in 1780,
he fell into disfavour at the court. Three years later, however, he was placed at
the head of the Franco-Spanish fleet assembled before Cadiz,
but peace was signed and no operations took place. He was then made a grandee
of Spain. When the French Revolution broke out, he favoured the new ideas. A
member of the Assembly of Notables, he was named commandant of the National
Guard at Versailles in 1789, and admiral in 1792. He constantly endeavoured to
protect the king, and at the trial of Marie Antoinette in 1793 spoke in her favour.
He was charged with being a reactionary and was sent to the scaffold, 28 April,
1794. In his moments of leisure, he wrote a poem, "Le Rêve" (1755), a tragedy
"Les Thermopyles" (1789), and a book on the colonies.
Giscard d'Estaing, Valéry
[välArE' zhEskär' destaN']
Giscard d'Estaing, Valéry , 1926–, French political leader, president of France
(1974–81). A member of the national assembly at the age of 29, he was deputy
finance minister (1959–62) and finance minister (1962–66) in Charles de Gaulle's
government. He held the latter post again in 1969 under President Georges
Pompidou, supporting European economic integration and closer ties with the
United States. Leader of the Independent Republicans, a conservative group
allied with the Gaullists, he ran for president after Pompidou's death in 1974,
defeating the Socialist François Mitterrand. After losing to Mitterrand in 1981,
he returned (1984–89) to the national assembly, played a major role in unifying
France's right wing, and from 1989 to 1993 was a leader in the European parliament.
The "particule" (the word "de" between the given name and the family name)
is often taken to be a sign of nobility. In fact, there are about 10,000 names in
France that look noble (e.g., with the particle "de"), many more than are really
noble. For example, the Laborde de Monpezat family (to which prince Henrik,
prince consort of Denmark belongs) is not noble. Conversely, there are noble
families without the particle in their name: a large number of Napoleonic and
19th c. titled names which have no "de" element; but also families of Old Regime
nobility which did not bother to add a particule to their name. There are several
examples among the old "noblesse de robe": Séguier, ennobled in 1544, Talon
ennobled in 16th c., Molé.
It is possible to change one's name in France, though it is an arduous and
costly process. Some families have changed their names and given it a nobiliary
appearance. It is also possible to re-use a name which has become extinct (relever
un nom): one needs to make sure that there is no one still entitled to bear that
name, and obtain a decree of the Conseil d'Etat. This was the procedure followed
by a M. Giscard, who legally changed his name to Giscard d'Estaing (the family
d'Estaing became extinct with the execution of the admiral d'Estaing in 1794). such
a procedure does not make anyone noble, obviously. His grandson, president of
the French Republic (1974-81)
