Catalogue Note

François-René de Chateaubriand (1768-1848) was an author, historian, politician and diplomat, who was the preeminent literary figure in 19th-century France, and is now considered to be the founder of Romanticism in French literature. Over the course of his political career he served as ambassador to Berlin, London and Rome. He was in clear support of the de Berry family as on the occasion of the assassination of the Duc de Berry in 1820 he wrote the Mémoires sur la vie et la mort du duc, and in 1833, Mémoire sur la captivité de Madame la duchesse de Berry.
