Alary, Etienne Aime
Alary, Etienne Aime a French priest, was born at Montpezat, in Vivarais, Sept. 29, 1762. He studied theology at the seminary of Viviers, and took sacred orders in 1785. At the time of the Revolution he was of the number of royalists who assembled at Jales, and emigrated in 1792. He was then appointed almoner of the general ward of the prince of Conde; and successively confessor of the dukes of Angouleme and Berry. He was found in all the campaigns in which the army of Conde was engaged from 1792 to 1800, displayed rare courage, and distinguished himself by lavish expenditure in succoring the wounded. He was wounded before Munich in 1796. He returned to France in 1803, was arrested in 1804, imprisoned at Sainte-Pelagie, and transferred to the Temple, where he spent many years of captivity. Banished until the return of Louis XVIII, he followed that monarch into Belgitim, and resumed the functions of almoner of the general ward. He died in 1819. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
