"History of Lyons," (2 vols., 1846-47.) Died in 1874.

Mongault, m6N'go', (NICOLAS HUBERT,) a French
litterateur, born in Paris in 1674. He made translations
of the " History" of Herodian and the " Letters of Cicero
to Atticus." The latter is particularly esteemed, and the
notes accompanying it are said to have furnished Mid-
dleton with important matter for his " Life of Cicero."
Mongault was a member of the French Academy and
of the Academy of Inscriptions. Died in 1746.

Monge, moNzh, (GASPARD,) Comte de Peluse, a cele-
brated French savant, and the creator of descriptive
geometry, was born at Beaune in 1746. Soon after he
left the College of Lyons he obtained a place in the col-
lege of military engineers at Mezieres. Having by his
skill in geometry made an important improvement in
the process used in the art of fortification, he became,
about the age of twenty, professor of mathematics and
of natural philosophy at Mezieres. While he filled
these chairs with great credit, he gradually perfected
the application of geometry to the arts of construc-
tion, which is now called descriptive geometry. In
1780 he was chosen a member of the Academy of Sci-
ences, and in 1783 removed to Paris, where he was
employed as examiner of candidates for the marine, for
whose use he wrote an able "Treatise on Statics." His
political affinities in the Revolution were with the re-
publicans, who appointed him minister of the marine in
1792. He resigned in April, 1793, and distinguished
himself by his zealous services in the fabrication of arms,
gunpowder, and other materials, which were urgently re-
quired for the national defence. In 1795 he published
the first edition of his excellent "Descriptive Geometry,"
and assisted in organizing the Polytechnic School, in
which he taught geometry and analysis. Monge, Fou-
rier, and Berthollet were the directors of the scientific
commission which accompanied Bonaparte to Egypt in
1798. Aided by pupils of the Polytechnic School, they
executed the geodesic and monumental description of
that country. Having returned home with Bonaparte,
he presided over the arrangement and publication of the
great work by which French science and art illustrated
Egypt During the Napoleonic regime he became a
senator, Count of Peruse, and grand officer of the legion
of honour. In 1816 he was expelled from the Institute
on account of his political antecedents. He died in 1818.
He left an important work called " Application of Analy-
sis to Geometry." His discoveries in geometry form an
epoch in that science, for which he is said to have done
more than any one since the time of Archimedes.

Monk, munk, (EDWIN GEORGE,) Mus. Doc., an English
musician and composer, born at Frome, Somerset, in 1819.
He has published some sacred compositions, and edited
collections of hymn- and psalm-tunes.

Monk, munk, (GEORGE,) Duke of Albemarle, a suc-
cessful English general, born in 1608, was the son of
Sir Thomas Monk, of Merton, Devonshire. After fight-
ing in the service of Holland, he returned to England
about the age of thirty. In the civil war he bore arms
for Charles I., and had acquired some reputation as an
able officer when he was made prisoner at Nantwich in
1644 by the Roundheads, who confined him in the Tower
of London more than a year. Having accepted a com-
mission from the Parliament, he commanded a repub-
lican army in the north of Ireland between 1646 and
1650. He contributed to the victory of Cromwell at
Dunbar, in 1650, and the next year was left in Scotland
as commander of an army, with which he speedily com-
pleted tne reduction of that country. Hume states that
he put to the sword all the inhabitants of Dundee, which
he had taken by assault ; though he elsewhere says his
temper was humane and his moderation remarkable.
In 1653 the government showed their confidence in his
skill by selecting him to co-operate with Admiral Blake
in a naval war against the Dutch. He commanded in
the sea-fight where Van Tromp was defeated and killed.
In 1654 he was successful in his efforts to enforce the
will and authority of the Protector in Scotland. At the
death of Oliver, in 1658, Monk proclaimed Richard
Cromwell as his successor. When the officers of the
army deposed Richard and restored the Long Par-
liament, he acquiesced, and retained command of the
army in Scotland. The royalists and republicans so-
licited his aid in the impending crisis ; but he kept all
parties in suspense by his dissimulation or irresolu-
tion. About the beginning of 1660 he marched towards
London, ostensibly to support the civil power against
Lambert's army. "Cold-blooded and taciturn," says
Macaulay, " zealous for no polity and for no religion

maintained an impenetrable reserve" when he was im-
plored to restore peace to the nation. Having cautious! y
removed from command those whom he distrusted, and
prepared the way for the restoration, he declared for a
free Parliament, which soon assembled, amidst general
joy and exultation. Charles II. was proclaimed king
in May, 1660, and rewarded the services of Monk by
creating him Duke of Albemarle. In 1666 Monk main-
tained his reputation in a great naval battle against the
Dutch. He died in 1670, leaving a son, at whose death
the family became extinct. Hume, after a eulogy of his
character, says, "I confess, however, that Dr. Douglas
has shown me an original letter of his, containing very
earnest and certainly false protestations of his zeal for
a commonwealth."

Monmouth, EARL OF. See MORDAUNT, and CAREY,

Monmouth, mon'muth, JAMES SCOTT,) DUKE OF,
born in 1649, was a natural son of Charles II. of Eng-
land. His mother's name was Lucy Walters. He married
about 1665 Anne Scott, Duchess of Buccleuch, said to
have been the richest heiress in the kingdom, and as-
sumed her name. He received the title of Duke of Buc-
cleuch, and was loaded with royal favours. His personal
advantages and agreeable manners rendered him very
popular. "Though a libertine," says Macaulay, " he won
the hearts of the Puritans." A rivalry or jealousy arose
between him and the Duke of York, afterwards James
II., through whose influence Monmouth was discarded
from court. He was in Holland when Charles II. died,
(1684.) A report thatCharles II. had married Lucy Wal-
ters privately was credulously received by the populace,
who regarded Monmouth as the rightful heir to the
throne and the champion of the Protestant cause. With
a party of armed exiles he invaded England in June, 1685,
and raised the standard of rebellion. He was received
with enthusiasm by the people, and gained a victory over
the royal troops at Axminster ; but he was completely
defeated at Sedgemoor, July 6, and captured a few days
later. Having been taken into the presence of King
James, he threw himself at his feet, and, with abject
spirit, begged for life at any price, but in vain. He was
executed in July, 1685.

chemist, born in Auvergne in 1734, was appointed in-

numerous other scientific works. Died in 1817.

some of his best works. Among his master-pieces are
