CM: Henri du Vergier, Comte de La Rochejacquelein (1772-1794) was a French commander, leader of the counter-revolutionary army in the Vendée. His legendary gallantry and tactical abilities were of little avail against superior Republican armies. He was killed in battle at Nouaillé. [Megakles Rogakos 12/2009]
