Life began for Louis de Donald in the manner
in which it was to be immortalized - aristocratic,
feudal and, above all, Catholic. Born at Milieu,
Prance on October 2, 1754, the descendant of one of
the old families of the Rouergue, Louis-GabrielAmbroise,
Vicomte de Donald later took great pride in
retracing his lineage to the time of the Reformation
when one of his forebears, Etienne de Donald ,(then a
member of the Parlament of Toulouse), was largely
responsible for the city's complete rejection of the
new religious ideas. The title of Vicomte did not,
as is sometimes erroneously supposed, originate with
Louis himself; but was acquired in the seventeenth
century by the family of Bonald when the estate of
la Rode came into their possession. It was as the
Vicomte de la Rode that Louis de Donald took his seat
in the 1789 Assembly of the Nobility of the Rouergue.
