Favras, Thomas de Mahy, marquis de
(1744-1790)
   political figure
   Born in Blois, Thomas de Mahy, marquis de Favras, was a first lieutenant (1772) in the Swiss Guard of King louis XVI's brother Monsieur, count of Provence (the future louis XV III). In 1783, he tried in vain, at the head of a patriotic legion, to bring help to Holland against Prussia. Author of a project on financial reform, which attracted the attention of the count of Mirabeau and of jacques necker, Favras was, since the beginning of the revolution of 1789, an agent of the count of Provence. Charged with recruiting royalist volunteers to assist in the flight of Louis XVI from Paris, he was denounced by two of his own agents who swore to the marquis de la fayette that he had asked them also to kill jean-sylvain bailly, who was serving as the mayor of Paris. Implicated in this plot, the count of Provence denounced Favras, who was sentenced to death and hanged.
