La Tour du Pin family

   aristocratic family
   A French family originally from the château de La Tour, in Isère, who became the rulers of Dauphiné with the marriage of Hubert to Anne, heiress to that region. The family sided with the Protestant cause during the Wars of Religion. René de La Tour du Pin-Gouvernat (1543-1619), then his son, Hector de La Tour du Pin-Montauban (1585-1630), were brilliant leaders of the Calvinist forces. René de La Tour du Pin-Montauban (1620-87), their descendant, distinguished himself in the service of the Imperial forces at the battle of Saint-Gothard, a brilliant victory in 1664, in which the imperial armies—led by Prince Raimondo Montecuculi— defeated the ottoman forces.
