Jacques Balthazar Brun of St. Catherine

There was a name in there that I recognised from my research into 17th century France. So I went to check it.

Wiki : Jacques Balthazar Brun de Sainte-Catherine


There seems to be a theme going on here. It’s catching.

First the Scots in Russia have flexible loyalties. And now the French.

One minute they’re all working for The Empire. The next, they all have turned coat and are now working for Peter and Catherine of Russia.

I call that False, Fake, Foney. Fickleness!
