marquis de LaFayette kitty by shadowclone marquis de LaFayette kitty by shadowclone
It's Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, marquis de la Fayette...or just marquis de LaFayette

I love this French dude. He have a funny background. He had challenge his friend to a duel in order to marry a beatiful women wouldn't speak to him. He also fall flat on his face when he was dancing with Queen Marie Antoinette:dance:. Some resources said that he did not bring his wife to America with him during the war because she would fall in love with an older man like his commander-in-chief George Washington:lmao:

Oh, speaking of George Washington. Lafayette adored the man. He saw Washington as a father figure just like Washington saw him as a son figure. He even name a kid after him, George Washington Lafayette. That ball says 'I :heart: George Washington'. I want that ball for myself :love:

I have never heard of his duel to marry Adrienne. It was an arranged marriage after all, she was 14 & he was 16 when they wed & they loved each other dearly so I don't know what sources you read that referenced the challenge, her avoidance or his fear that Adrienne would become smitten by his future commanding officer.

But yes, tripping in front of Marie Antoinette(she giggled got the whole court to laugh at him), naming his son after his general & the adorable Father/Son relationship they shared is all true!

This is very cute, I love the idea :)

He really dueled for her? And she wouldn't speak to him? Gawd, I'd love a guy who dueled over me!
