1749, Mar 91791, Apr 2
a leader of the early stages of the French revolution. A noble, he was involved before 1789 in numerous scandals that left his reputation in ruins. However, during the early years (1789–91) of the French Revolution he rose to the top and became a voice of the people. Romilly was introduced to Mirabeau by Sir Francis D'Ivernois (1757–1842), and undertook the translation of Mirabeau's the Considérations sur l'ordre de Cincinnatus into English. It was one of several works Mirabeau wrote in the year 1785, and it is a good specimen of his method. Several other pamphlets Mirabeau wrote in 1785 attacked financial speculation.
