Duval (De Danpierre), Charles Antoine Henri
Duval (de Danpierre), Charles Antoine Henri a French prelate, was born at the castle of Hans in 1746, and became, by marriage, lord of Dampierre-le-Chateau. He exercised the functions successively of grand-vicar, canon, and archbishop of Paris until 1791; but, as he would not take the constitutional oath, he was incarcerated until 1794. Eight years after, he was nominated by the first consul to the bishopric of Clermont, and, in 1811, was called to the national council at Paris, in which he took part with the majority who resisted the will of the emperor. In 1814 Louis XVIII appointed him member of the commission of affairs of the Church of France; in 1828 he signed the memoir against the ordinances of June. His Christian charity had won him the affections and the respect of his flock. He died in 1833. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
