He was thence transferred (Feb. 1, 1708) to the archbishopric of Aix, and finally (May 12, 1729) to that of Paris. In all his offices he displayed great fidelity and public generosity, but often fell under royal and even papal displeasure for his defense of national and popular rights. He died at Paris, March 13, 1746. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé, s.v.
