More information

Chevalier d'Éon de Beaumont was born in Tonnerre, Burgundy, to Louis d'Éon de Beaumont, an attorney and Director of the king's dominions, and Françoise de Charanton, daughter of a Commissioner General to the armies of the Wars of Spain and Italy. Most of what is known about d'Éon's early life comes from a partly ghost-written autobiography, The Interests of the Chevalier d'Éon de Beaumont.[1]

The title chevalier, 'Knight', refers to the honorary title 'chevalier des ordres du Roi', conferred by the King of France. d'Éon excelled in school, moving from Tonnerre to Paris in 1743, graduating civil law and canon law from Collège Mazarin, in 1749 at age 21. d'Éon served as a secretary to the administrator of the fiscal department and was a royal censor.
