Barbaroux, Charles, born at Marseilles in 1767, was in early life distinguished by his aptitude for physical science, and corresponded with Benjamin Franklin. Elected to the National Assembly on the outbreak of the Revolution, he opposed the violence of Marat and Robespierre, proposed the trial of Louis XVI., and fell with the Girondists. He was seized and guillotined at Bordeaux in 1794.
