Soubise Charles

Soubise, CHARLES DE ROHAN, PRINCE DE, born in Paris in 1715, being the son of a mistress of Louis XIV. Though an incompetent soldier, he was entrusted with high command by Louis XV., and in 1757 was ignominiously defeated by Frederick the Great at Rossbach. In the next year, under the guidance of Marshal d'Estrees, he to some extent retrieved his reputation, and in 1762 was successful at Johannisberg. His later years were spent at Court, where he enjoyed the patronage of Madame de Pompadour and Madame Dubarry. He died in 1787.
