Louis-Guillaume Otto (1753-1754) was a French diplomat. His career started in the USA as secretary to the Chevalier de la Luzerne. It was in 1800 when he was appointed to London, first as the commissioner for the exchange of prisoners of war and then as minister plenipotentiary. He was, however, also Napoleon's agent and it was through him that Hawkesbury negotiated the Peace of Amiens, signed 1802.
