Huguet, Marc Antoine a French prelate, was born at Moissac in 1757. He entered the sacred order in his youth, and became curate of a little village in Auvergne. In 1791 he was elected bishop of Creuse. During the French Revolution he was a member of the Legislature, and of the National Convention, and voted for the death of the king. Complicated in several popular disturbances, and conspiring against the established government, he was arrested in 1795, and imprisoned at Ham for several months.
