Coincidentally perhaps, I have just re-read an account of the French grave of the first wife of the Duke of Berwick, originally obtained from a web source for which I sadly failed to record the URL. Berwick and his family might make an interesting study in this (or any other!) regard because he was an English subject but born and educated in France and, after having been outlawed in England for his activities in support of his father (James II), he became a naturalized French citizen. A gifted soldier and commander, he was highly regarded by, and received great honors from, the French, as well as the Spanish. Interestingly, his victory at the battle of Almanza is said to be the only instance in history of a French army with an English general defeating an English army with a French general. Lordy, I love trivia! Sandra Snider independent scholar ----- Original Message ----- I am interested in the despoilment of graves of the English (from monarchs to lesser nobles who died in France) during the French Revolution. I would be grateful for any insight on this, or any leads on articles, etc. Please respond to my institutional address firstname.lastname@example.org_ (mailto:email@example.com).
