French churchman and statesman, César-Guillaume DE LA LUZERNE (1738-1821) participated in parliament in 1772 and delivered the funeral oration of LOUIS XV at Notre Dame.
Elected deputy of the clergy to the GENERAL STATES on March 27, 1789, he had offered half of his income to the relief of the State in January of the same year. During his STATES GENERAL, he defended the establishment of a representative system close to a limited monarchy rather than a parliamentary monarchy.
Refusing later to take an oath to the civil constitution of the clergy, he was indicted in early 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.
