Nicolas Changarnier (1848)


French general, who rose through the ranks, and eventually received the command of the National Guard of Paris and the troops in Paris, altogether nearly 100,000 men.

Changarnier ran for president in the election of 1848, but came in dead last with less than ten thousand votes out of ten times that many.

In 1849 Changarnier received the grand cross of the Legion of Honour. In January 1851 he opposed Louis Napoleon's policy, was in consequence deprived of his double command, and at the coup d'état in December was arrested and sent to Mazas, until his banishment from France by the decree of 9 January 1852.

Changarnier returned to France after the general amnesty. In 1871 he was elected to the National Assembly by four departments, and sat for the Somme, taking an active part in politics.

Nicolas Changarnier died on 14 February 1877 at age 83 in Versailles.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield cites birth record quoted in Mémoires de la Société Éduenne, Volume 6 (Société Éduenne des Lettres, Sciences et Arts (Autun, France), 1877), page 312: "Cejourd'hui vingt-six avril mil sept cent quatre-vingt-treize, l'an second de la République Française, sur les deux heures et demie après midi, en la maison commune de la ville d'Autun et par-devant nous Jean Suchet, ... a comparu la citoyenne Anne Changarnier ... est accouchée cejourd'hui à neuf heures du matin, au domicile de son mari, d'un enfant mâle auquel il ete a donné le prénoms de Nicolas-Anne-Theodule." NB: Decimal time was observed during this period but considering that there were only ten 'hours' allocated per 24-hour period this time of nine o'clock in the morning ("neuf heures du matin") obviously was not recorded in decimal time.
