Bourrienne, Louis Antoine Fauvelet (1769-1834), fellow-student and secretary of Napoleon. He was at Brienne with Napoleon, and having followed diplomacy, he went to Italy with Napoleon and became his private secretary, and with Clarke drew up the treaty of Campo-Basso. He also went to Egypt with Napoleon, and stayed with him till 1802, when, becoming implicated in the questionable bankruptcy of a contractor, he was removed and sent as charge d'affaires to Hamburg, where in 1813 he was again mixed up in questionable speculations. He afterwards joined Louis-Philippe, and became a minister of State and deputy of the Yonne. The revolution of July drove him mad, and in this state he died. He wrote some memoirs in which he spoke very plainly of Napoleon, but his statements are not much trusted, and to correct them the Count of Aure wrote (1830) Bourrienne et ses Erreurs volontaires et involontaires.
