Bouille, Francois Claude Amour, Marquis de, French general, was born in 1739, at Cluzel castle, Auvergne. He signalised himself in the Seven Years' war, became governor of the island of Guadeloupe, and commander-in-chief of the French forces in the West Indies. He was nominated by Louis XVI. a member of the first Assembly of Notables, and in 1790 appointed to the command of the army of the Meuse, the Saar, and the Moselle. He did all he could to assist the escape of Louis XVI., and for this had to flee, entering the service of Gustavus III. of Sweden in 1791. He ultimately came to London, and published his Memoirs of the French Revolution, and died in 1800.
