Count Albert de Mun, Paladin of the Third Republic

Synopsis

De Mun led the shift of the French Right from royalism to republicanism during the first half of the Third Republic. He was an aristocrat who sought to build a popular party, a fervid Catholic who would be undermined by his church, an idealist who engaged in illegal conspiracies, and a patriot whose nation would reject his counsel until just before his death. France's conservatives were in such disarray between 1875 and 1914 that he became their dominant voice for nearly forty years.
