notes

Joseph Fouché (1763-1820) French statesman and head of internal security under Napoleon Bonaparte, Joseph Fouché had been a Jacobin member of the Convention, Fouche voted for the death of Louis XVI and later became politically more conservative when he sensed it was opportune. In 1799, Fouche became Minister of Police. He supported Napoleon’s coming to power in the coup of Brumaire. Nevertheless, Bonaparte mistrusted Fouché and removed him from office for two years, before re-employing him as security chief. In 1810, the Emperor learned Fouché had been having secret talks with foreign powers and eventually sacked him. Fouché, however, won his way back into semi-favor and was given the governorship of Illyria. After the Bourbon return to power Fouché kept links with Bonaparte, as he did with the royals during the 100 Days' Campaign. After the Emperor's final defeat he was president of the commission ruling France and even had a place in government. However, pro-royalists objected to a regicide being in power and Fouché quit his post after only a few months. Fouché was made a Count of the Empire in 1808 and Duke d’Otranto in 1809.
