France's ambassador to Spain. Talleyrand, the former bishop of Autun turned foreign minister, had appointed Ferdinand Guillemardet France's ambassador to Spain in 1798. Guillemardet also came from Autun, where he was a physician and mayor, and then elected to represent the town in the Convention. In 1800, he was recalled to France and became a prefect. But a tragic fate befell the ambassador: he went insane and died in 1809.
