against whom he employed a temporizing policy. He
sent him a magnificent present, but forbade him to ap-
proach the capital. "This was to reveal," says Prescott,
" both his wealth and his weakness." Cortez entered the
city of Mexico, without resistance, in November, 1519,
and found a hospitable reception. To secure himself
against contingencies, the audacious Spaniard next seized
Montezuma and held him as a hostage. His captors
tried to convert him to the Roman Catholic religion,

of Air," he conceived the possibility of aerial navigation,
and imparted the idea to his brother Joseph, who was as
another self. Acting in concert and community, they
contrived the means of realizing this project. After
trying hydrogen gas and other fluids, they made the first
public experiment at Annonay in June, 1783, and sent
up a balloon about thirty-seven French feet in diameter,
inflated with air rarefied by heat. This successful ex-
periment made a great sensation, and was soon repeated
at Paris. The brothers were admitted into the Acad-
emy of Sciences. Their balloons were called Montgol-

MONTIGNY



Montgomery, (JAMES,) a distinguished poet, born in
Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1771, was the son of a Moravian
preacher. He was sent at an early age to the Moravian
school at Fulneck, in Yorkshire, where his progress was
not very satisfactory to his teachers, as he spent the
greater part of his time in reading and writing poetry,
which was prohibited by the rules of the school. After
leaving Fulneck, he resided for a time, as shopman in a
book -store, in London, and in 1792 began to contribute
political articles to the "Sheffield Register," edited by
Mr. Joseph Gales. He founded in 17943 reform jour-
nal, called the " Sheffield Iris," of which he was editor
about thirty years. Several of his articles having been
denounced as revolutionary, he was twice fined and
imprisoned. He published in 1806 his "Wanderer of
Switzerland," which was followed by " The West Indies,"
(1809,) "The World before the Flood," (1812,) and "The
Pelican Island, "(1827.) These poems are distinguished
for depth and tenderness of feeling, elevated moral
sentiment, and graceful description. He also wrote a
number of hymns of great beauty, which enjoy exten-
sive popularity. One of Mr. Montgomery's last works
was a " History of Missionary Enterprise in the South
Seas," (1830.) Died in 1854.

Scotsmen," (Supplement ;) "Quarterly Review" for December, 1811 ;

Montgomery, (RICHARD,) a distinguished general,
born in Ireland in 1737, served in Canada under Wolfe,
and subsequently entered the American army. Being
appointed commander of the forces in the Northern
department, he took Fort Chambly and Montreal. He
was killed in December, 1775, in an assault upon Quebec.

SPARKS'S " American Biography," vol. i., first series ; " National
Portrait-Gallery of Distinguished Americans," vol. iv.

Montgomery, mpnt-gum'e-re, (ROBERT,) an English
divine and poet, born at Bath in 1807. He was the
author of a poem entitled "The Omnipresence of the
Deity," (1828,) which had great temporary success, eight
editions being sold in as many months. He became in
1843 pastor of Percy Street Chapel, London. The extra-
ordinary success of his poetry was chiefly to be ascribed
to the nature of his subject and the favour of a large
portion of the religious community. Died in 1855.

in 1862. Died at Bristol, Pennsylvania, May 31, 1871.

Montgomery, mont-gum'e-re, de, [ Fr. pron. den
m6N'gom're',] (GABRIEL,) a French nobleman, of Scot-
tish extraction, born about 1530. Being present at a
tournament given by Henry II. on the occasion of his
daughter's marriage with the King of Spain, Montgomery
was summoned by the French king to break a lance with
him. He complied reluctantly, and had the misfortune
to inflict a mortal wound on his antagonist. He subse-
quently went to England, where he became a Protestant,
and, after his return to France in 1562, distinguished
himself as a leader of the Huguenots in the civil war of
the time. Being made prisoner by Marshal Matignon
at the siege of Saint-Lo, in 1574, he was condemned to
death and executed, by order of Catherine de Medicis.
"The queen," says Sismondi, "had no great affection
for Henry II., or cause to regret him ; but she wished
that a man should not be considered innocent after
having, even by accident, caused the death of a king."

Prussia. He was sent in 1811 on an important embassy
to the archduke Ferdinand at Wiirzburg, and in 1814
was made general of brigade. He shared the emperor's
exile at Saint Helena, and served him with unwearied
fidelity till his death, being appointed by him executor
of his will and keeper of part of his manuscripts. After
his return to France, Montholon published, in conjunc-
tion with General Gourgaud, "Memoirs towards the
History of France under Napoleon, dictated by Himself
at Saint Helena," (1823.) He also wrote an "Account
of the Captivity of Napoleon at Saint Helena," (1847.)
Died in 1853.

lived as an exile in London. Died October 16, 1881.

Monti, (ViNCENZO,) a celebrated Italian poet, born
near Ferrara in 1753. He studied in the university of
that city, and began at an early age to write Latin and
Italian poems. These compositions obtained for him
the notice and patronage of Cardinal Borghese, who took
Monti with him to Rome in 1778. He published in 1785
his tragedy of " Aristodemo," which was received with
great favour. His poem entitled " Bassvilliana," (1793,)
suggested by the murder of Hugo de Bassville, envoy of
the French republic at Rome, had also great popularity,
and passed through eighteen editions in six months.
Upon the French invasion in 1796, Monti repaired to
Milan, where, accommodating himself to the new order
of things, he wrote in favour of the Revolution. Some
of his writings, which originally contained bitter in-
vectives against Napoleon, were now altered so as
to transfer the abuse to the allied sovereigns. On the
Russian invasion in 1799 he took refuge for a time in
France, and, soon after his return, published his tragedy
of "Caio Gracco," "La Mascheroniana," a poem on
the death of his friend Mascheroni, and his beautiful
and popular hymn beginning " Bell' Italia," etc. Monti
became in 1803 professor of eloquence at Pavfa, and on
the coronation of Napoleon, in 1805, was appointed his
historiographer. He filled this office rather as court
poet than historian , and lavished a profusion of eulogistic
verses on the emperor and his family. He was created
by him a chevalier of the legion of honour and of the
; iron crown, and was chosen a member of the Institute
of the kingdom of Italy. Died in 1828.

He was made a marshal in 1522, and was taken prisoner
at Pavia in 1525. In 1536, by skilful manoeuvres, he
defended Provence, which was invaded by Charles V. in
person. He was appointed constable in 1538, and was
chief minister of Francis I. from that date until 1541,
when he fell into disgrace. Henry II. restored him to



favour and power in 1547. Montmorency was defeated
and made prisoner at the battle of Saint-Quentin, in 1557.
The death of Henry II., in 1559, was fatal to his am-
bitious prospects, and opened the way for the accession
to power of his rival the Due de Guise. He fought for
the Catholic party in the civil war, and in 1562 com-
manded at Dreux, where he gained the victory, but
was made prisoner. He was mortally wounded at the
battle of Saint-Denis, in 1567. He has been censured
for austerity and excessive rigour, but had several great
qualities.

pression on the king, Henry IV., that her husband was
alarmed, and conducted her to a foreign country. She
was the mother of the great Condd, of the Prince of
Conti, and of the Duchess of Longueville. Died in 1650.

generosity, and name rendered him a great favourite with
the court, the army, and the people. He commanded

Rohan in 1628. For his victory over the Imperialists at

Gaston, a brother of Louis XIII. and heir-presumptive
to the throne, and incited by enmity to Richelieu, he took
arms against the government, and encountered the royal
army at Castelnaudary in 1632. With too impetuous
valour, he exposed himself at the head of his army, was
wounded, and made prisoner. He was tried for treason,
and beheaded in October, 1632. He left no issue, and
