Hide Profile

Louis Matthieu Mole was a French monarchist statesman who held office under Napoleon I, Louis XVIII, and Louis-Philippe. After the July Revolution of 1830, Molé served Louis-Philippe as prime minister and minister of foreign affairs (1836-39). His ministry strengthened the French hold on Algeria, achieved a satisfactory solution of the Belgian question, and sought conciliation at home. The ministry, however, was attacked for being a mouthpiece of the King, and Molé resigned in 1839 (though he continued to serve in the Chamber of Deputies). When revolution broke out in 1848, Louis-Philippe again asked Molé to form a government (February 23), but to do so proved impracticable. He was a right-wing deputy in the Legislative Assembly in 1848-51, but after the coup d'etat of Dec. 2, 1851, he retired from public life.
