LOBAU, Georges Mouton, Conte de (1770-1838) participated in the Napoleonic Wars as a General. He was peered in 1809 after the battle of Essling, and after a short period as prisoner in England he returned to France in 1818. He was a politician and from 1828 to 1833 Deputy and served as General of the National Guard from 1830 on. In May 1831, he dispersed a Bonapartist manifestation on Place Vendôme by using water hoses from the fire fighters. For this reason he was nicknamed “Prince de tricanule” and “Seringot”.
