Swiss writer, scholar and public official who was the most important Swiss historian of the 18th century. His most significant work was "Geschichten Schweizerischer Eidgenossenschaft ("History of the Swiss Confederation")," 1786-1808.

Müller spent most of his life in Germany and held political posts under the elector of Mainz, the king of Prussia and King Jérôme Bonaparte of Westphalia. While his ambition was to unite the spiritual heritage of Rome with the German origins of his own civilization, much of his life was filled with tension between his scholarly work and his diplomatic-political positions.

Near the end of his life, he became director of education in the service of Napoleon. Müller died 5/29/1809, Kassel, Westphalia, Germany.
