French clergyman and statesman, César-Guillaume DE LA LUZERNE (1738-1821) participated in parliament in 1772 and pronounced at Notre Dame the funeral oration of LOUIS XV.
Elected deputy of the clergy to the ESTATES GENERAL on March 27, 1789, he had offered half of his income to the relief of the state in January of the same year. At his ESTATES GENERAL, he advocated the establishment of a representative system close to a limited monarchy rather than a parliamentary monarchy.
Later refusing to take an oath to the civil constitution of the clergy, he was indicted early in 1791 and lost his bishopric.
After emigrating to Switzerland, he returned to France in 1814 after the fall of Napoleon.
In 1817, during the Restoration, the king appointed him Minister of State.
