Pierre Gaxotte

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pierre Gaxotte (19 November 1895 – 21 November 1982) was a French historian.

Gaxotte was born in Revigny-sur-Ornain, Meuse. He began his career as a history teacher at the Lycée Charlemagne and later worked as a columnist for Le Figaro. Over the course of his life he authored numerous historical studies, and was elected to the Académie française in 1953.[1]

He is famous for his critical vision of the French Revolution, notably in The French Revolution (1928),[2] and for his rehabilitation of the French 18th century (Louis XV's Century, 1933). He is also known as a far-right-wing journalist of the Entre-deux-Guerres period, with links to the Action française and the newspaper Je suis partout.
