Louis Antoine Fauvelet de Bourrienne

Bourrienne, Louis Antoine Fauvelet de (lwē äNtwänˈ fōvəlāˈ də bōrēĕnˈ) [key], 1769–1834, French political figure. He was a friend and for a time (1797–1802) private secretary to Napoleon, who made him a councillor of state. Bourrienne later supported the Bourbon restoration and was elected to the chamber of deputies, where he was a spokesman for the ultraroyalist followers of King Charles X. His memoirs (10 vol., 1829–31) are vivid but untrustworthy.
