Wallpaper Description:
François Athanase de Charette de la Contrie (2 May 1763 - 26 March 1796) was a French soldier and politician, one on the leaders of the bloody Revolt in the Vendée. His relative Athanase-Charles-Marie Charette de la Contrie was a noted military leader.

Defeat

On the 17 February 1795, near Vertou, Charette signed a peace treaty with the emissaries of the National Convention, which included freedom of religion guarantees and excluded local peasants from the levée en masse. He broke his parole and took back to fighting in July to help the invasion by emigrated aristocrats in Quiberon, with assistance from the British.

The Count of Artois made him Lieutenant General, but refused to lead the Royal Army. Charette later refused to join the liberal Orléanists. Pursued by General Lazare Hoche, he was defeated in Quiberon; wounded, he was captured and executed by firing squad in Nantes.
