Peyronnet, Charles-Ignace, count de

   political figure
   Born in bordeaux, Charles-Ignace, count de Pey-ronnet (or Peyronet) opposed napoléon i and the first empire. In 1815, he went over to the Bourbons and became an Ultra deputy (1820). Named guardian of the royal seals in the government of jean-baptiste de villèle (1831-38), Peyronnet was one of the principal instigators of the most reactionary laws of the Restoration: the limitation on freedom of the press (1822), the law of sacrilege (1825), the law on the right of seniority, and the law of "justice and love" (1827), of which pierre royer-collard remarked that one could replace these provisions with a single article: "the print-shop is abolished in France." As minister of the interior in the jules de polignac cabinet (1829-30), Peyronnet took part in the editing and signing of the four ordinances of Saint-Cloud (July 25, 1830) that unleashed the revolution of 1830. Condemned by the new government, he was amnestied in 1836.
