Jean-Frédéric Phélypeaux, comte de Maurepas (1701-1781) reçoit de son père (après la mort de Louis XIV) la charge de secrétaire d’État de la Maison du roi. En 1723, il obtient en outre le département de la Marine. En janvier 1738, il est promu ministre d’État. Disgrâcié pour une épigramme contre Madame de Pompadour en 1749, Maurepas est exilé à Bourges puis à Pontchartrain. À l’avènement de Louis XVI, il est rappelé aux affaires en qualité de ministre d’État et de président du conseil des finances. Il s’adjoint des ministres réformateurs comme Turgot et Necker, mais il ne sait pas les défendre des intrigues de la Cour. Son secrétaire publia sous son nom des Mémoires.
