Short biography
Saint-Evremond studied law in Paris and then joined the French Army in 1629. He served through a great part of the Thirty Years' War, distinguishing himself at the siege of Landrecies (1637), when he was made captain. During this time, he studied the works of Montaigne and learned Spanish and Italian. He was a friend of Louis-Charles-Gaston, duc de Candale (of whom he left a very severe word portrait). Saint-Evremond had to live in exile from France after 1661 as a consequence of his attacks on French policy. He wrote mainly for his friends and didn't intend his works to be published -- most of them only appeared in print after his death.
