Beaune Jacquesde Baronof Samblancay

Beaune, Jacques de, Baron of Samblancay, born at Tours in 1445, became the superintendent of finances under Charles VIII., Louis XII., and Francis I. He lent to the queen-mother, Louise of Savoy, a, sum of money destined for Lautrec, who was then endeavouring to relieve Milan, and whose expedition failed in consequence. Louise induced his secretary, Gentil, to steal the receipts, and Jacques being charged with embezzlement was convicted and hanged (1527). His innocence was afterwards proved, and Gentil was sent to the gallows.
