Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, 1st Sovereign Prince of Beneventum (2 February 1754Template:Ndash 17 May 1838) was a French diplomat. He worked successfully from the regime of Louis XVI, through the French Revolution and then under Napoleon I, Louis XVIII, Charles X, and Louis-Philippe. Known since the turn of the 19th century simply by the name Talleyrand, he is widely regarded as one of the most versatile and influential diplomats in European history.

Napoleon forced his hand into marriage in September 1802 to longtime mistress Catherine Grand(née Worlée).
