Antonie-François Andreossy (1761-1828) was a French general and diplomat of noble and Italian descent. He served under Napoleon during the French Revolutionary Wars and accelerated through the ranks until in 1800 he was made Général de Division after assisting Napoleon during the 18 Brumaire Coup. After various artillery appointments he was made Ambassador to Britain, the Austrian Empire and the Ottoman Empire until in 1809 he was created a count of the First French Empire. On the fall of Napoleon he was called back to France and held high military administrative offices after the Bourbon Restoration, being elected to the Chamber of Deputies in 1827.
