Turenne was educated in the Protestant religion by
Daniel Tilenus, a tolerant Calvinist He served, in ha
early youth, under his uncles Maurice of Nassau and
Henry Frederick, (1625-30.) During this period of five
or six years he fought against the Spaniards, and acquired
much practical knowledge of the art of war. In 1630
be returned to France, and received command of a regi-
ment He obtained the high rank of marechal-de-camp
in 1635, and was sent in the same year, under La Vallette,
to defend Mentz against the Imperialists. In 1637 he
took Landrecies, and gained some successes in Flanders.
As second in command under Harcourt, he had the
principal part in the capture of Turin in 1640. His

Cromotion was retarded by the political course of his
rother, the Due de Bouillon. He was raised to the
rank of marshal of France in 1643, and ordered to Ger-
many, where he was second in command under the
Prince of Conde. The success of the French at Nord-
lingen in 1645 was attributed to Turenne by Condi
himself. In 1646, by judicious plans and skilful man-
oeuvres, he gained important advantages without much
loss of life. He effected a junction with the Swedish
army, invaded Bavaria, and compelled the Duke of
Bavaria to sue for peace. The long war was terminated
by the peace of Westphalia, (1648,) and the civil war of
the Fronde began in 1649. Turenne, probably, felt little
zeal for either party in this contest. He declined to
fight for Mazarin, and retired to Holland after he had
been superseded in the command of the army. The
Prince of Conde having been imprisoned by Mazarin, in
January, 1650, Turenne declared himself in favour of the
captive prince, and took arms at Stenay against the
court. He was defeated near Rethel by the royal army
in December, 1650, soon after which Conde was liberated
from prison.

In 1651 he went to Paris, and married Charlotte de
Caumont, a daughter of Armand, Due de La Force-
He accepted in March, 1652, the chief command of the

-oyal army, and was o; posed to the Prince of Cond^,
who, in alliance with the Spaniards, had renewed the
war. Turennt defeated his adversary at Paris in 1652,
and at Arras in 1654, after which the seat of war was
transferred to Flanders. He gained a decisive victory
over Conde and the Spaniards at the battle of the
Dunes, near Dunkirk, in 1658. Peace was concluded in
1659. After the death of Mazarin, Turenne had much
influence in the direction of the foreign policy of France.
He was persuaded to become a Roman Catholic in 1668.
He commanded a large army which invaded Holland in
1672, and conquered several provinces of that country.
Unable to resist this army in battle, the Dutch opened
the dykes, flooded the country, and thus checked the in-
vaders. In 1674 he defeated the Imperialists in several
actions near the Rhine, and ravaged the Palatinate with
excessive cruelty, which is perhaps the only stain on
his memory. He was opposed in the next campaign to
Montecuculi, an Austrian general of great skill, and was
killed at Salzbach in July, 1675. Turenne was distin-
guished for his modesty, sobriety, sound judgment, and
impassible composure in action.

duced treatises on various subjects. He was versed in the
ancient languages and many sciences. In the perform-
ance of his administrative duties as intendant, he made
several reforms and experiments in political economy.
He suppressed the corvees, opened new roads, introduced
the use of potatoes, and distributed the burden of taxation
more eauitably. Having formed friendly relations with
the philosophic party, of which Voltaire and D'Alem-
bert were leaders, he contributed to the " Encyclopedic"
articles on " Existence," " Expansibilite," " Fairs and

controller-general of finance, then the most important
office of the government. Among his first acts was the
restoration of free trade in grain between the provinces.
He abolished several oppressive laws and feudal privv
leges, reformed abuses, and began to improve, by econ-
omy, the public finances. His policy was expressed by
the phrase, "No bankruptcy, no increase of taxes, nc
loans." The courtiers, nobles, politicians, and privileged
classes combined against him. He was removed in May
1776. His friend Malesherbes said that Turgot hac
"the heart of L'Hopital with the head of Bacon.'
Voltaire was a warm admirer of Turgot, whom he char
acterized as the best minister that France ever had
Turgot corresponded with Benjamin Franklin, and wrote
a Memoir on the American war. Died in March, 1781
"There are crises," says the "Fortnightly Review'
for August, 1870, "when a character tells far more than
an idea, and is at once a saving opportunity and a de
cisive force. Such a character was Turgot. The furthe
we recede from the French Revolution, the more pre
eminent does this firm and exalted figure shine forth,
the one legislator who might have saved France."

the reign of Charles II. and was notorious for his cruel
treatment of the Scottish Covenanters. He left an auto-
biography.

Turner, (JOSEPH MALLORD WILLIAM,) an eminent
English landscape-painter, born in London in April,
1775, was a son of a hair-dresser. He received only an
ordinary education, and passed his boyhood mostly in
London. " At last," says Ruskin, " fortune wills that
the lad's true life shall begin ; and one summer evening
he finds himself sitting alone among the Yorkshire hills.
For the first time the silence of Nature around him, her
freedom sealed to him, her glory opened to him," He
was admitted as a student in the Royal Academy in
1789. "So taught and prepared for his life's labour,
sat the boy at last alone among his fair English hills,
and began to paint, with cautious toil, the rocks and
fields, and trickling brooks, and soft white clouds of
heaven." (" Modern Painters," vol. v.) For many
years he used water-colours almost exclusively. He
exhibited a "View of Lambeth Palace" in 1790. His
early pictures represented mostly English or Welsh
scenery. In 1799 he was elected an associate of the
Royal Academy, and exhibited an oil-painting of " The
Battle of the Nile." He became a Royal Academician
in 1802, after which he travelled in France, Switzerland,
and the valley of the Rhine. Among his master-pieces
are "The Fall of Schaffhausen," (1805,) "The Sun
Rising through Vapour," (1806,) "Narcissus and Echo,"
(1814,) "Apollo and Python," and "Childe Harold's
Pilgrimage," (1832.) In 1807 or 1808 he commenced
the publication of his famous " Liber Studiorum," a
series of prints or drawings. He visited Italy in 1819,
1829, and 1840. According to Ruskin, he surpassed
all former artists in " the expression of the infinite re-
dundance of natural landscape. . . . This work, done by
Turner among the hills, joining the most intense appre-
ciation of all tenderness with delight in all magnitude
and memory for all detail, is never to be rivalled or
looked upon in similitude again." ("Modern Painters,"
vol. iv. chap, xvii.) Turner was never married. His
disposition was reserved and unsociable, and he is repre-
sented as having been extremely parsimonious. He
died in London in December, 1851, having bequeathed
to the nation a large number of oil-paintings, which are
exhibited in the National Gallery.
