Philippe-Louis-Marc-Antoine de Noailles, 1st duc de Mouchy

Philippe-Louis-Marc-Antoine, comte de Noailles, prince-duc de Poix, and duc de Mouchy (November 21 or December 21, 1752—February 15 or February 17, 1819), was a French politician of the Revolution, the son of Philippe de Noailles and grandson of Adrien-Maurice, 3rd duc de Noailles. He held the courtesy title of "prince de Poix" as a child.


In 1789 he was elected to the Estates-General by the "noblesse" of Amiens and Ham, but was compelled to resign in consequence of a duel with the commander of the National Guard of Versailles.

He left the country for some time, but returned to France and took part in the riots of August, 1792. He was, however, forced to quit the country once more to evade the fate of his father and mother, guillotined in 1794. On his father's death, he acceded "à brevêt" to the titles of "comte de Noailles" and "duc de Poix", as well as to the Spanish title "duc de Mouchy".

Returning to France in 1800, he lived quietly at his residence in Mouchy-le-Châtel (Oise) during the Empire. After the Bourbon Restoration, he again came into favor and in 1817 was created "duc de Mouchy" as a French title, thus becoming a Peer of France.
