Chlopicki, Joseph, was born in Galicia or Podolia in 1772, and entered the French army about 1796, rising to the rank of General. He took an active part in the Russian campaign of 1812. After the fall of Napoleon he transferred his services for a short time to Russia, but soon retired. In 1830 he was chosen Dictator by the revolutionary Poles, but his want of impetuosity displeased his colleagues, and at the end of a few weeks he resigned. He then served in the ranks, and was wounded. He survived until 1854.
