Marquis de Lafayette (17571834) was a French statesman and military officer who became an intimate associate of George Washington and advanced the American cause on both sides of the Atlantic. Although he espoused many of the principles behind the French Revolution while advocating a limited monarchy, extremist elements in the French Assembly declared him a traitor, whereupon he was jailed for five years. From 1824 to 1825, he revisited America where he was hailed as a hero and granted a generous stipend and parcel of land.
