   Born in Paris, Amboise Polycarpe de la Rochefoucauld, duke de Doudeauville, emigrated at the time of the revolution of 1789. He returned to France during the Consulate but, as a royalist, constantly refused to serve under napoléon i and remained in retirement until the restoration. A member of the Chamber of Peers, where he generally voted with the Right, he became minister of the king's household in 1824. At this time he encouraged charles x to purchase the estate at Grignon for creating an agricultural school there.
