Sorti de l’école de Mézières, capitaine du génie en 1783, Lazare Carnot (1753-1823) se rallia à la Révolution. Député du Pas-de-Calais à la Législative, chargé d’une mission à l’armée du Rhin dès août 1792, il siégea ensuite à la Convention et vota la mort de Louis XVI. Il entra au Comité de salut public en août 1793 et contribua au 9 thermidor. Membre du Directoire (novembre 1795), il se trouva bientôt en opposition avec Barras et se réfugia en Allemagne après le coup d’État du 18 fructidor. Rappelé par Bonaparte, il devint ministre de la Guerre en 1800. Membre du Tribunat, il s’opposa à l’institution de l’Empire. Ministre de l’Intérieur pendant les Cent-Jours, il se retira, après 1816, à Varsovie puis à Magdebourg, d’où ses restes furent ramenés en France pour être déposés au Panthéon.
