Biography

Sébastien le Prestre de Vauban was born 4 May 1633, in Saint-Léger-de-Foucheret, in the Nièvre, now part of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. His birthplace was renamed Saint-Léger-Vauban by Napoleon III in 1867.

His parents, Urbain le Prestre (ca 1602-1652) and Edmée de Comignolle (?-ca 1651), were members of the minor nobility, from Vauban in Bazoches. His grandfather Jacques acquired Château de Bazoches in 1570 when he married Françoise de la Perrière, an illegitimate daughter of the Comte de Bazouches, who died intestate. The resulting 30 year legal battle by the Le Pestre family to retain the property proved financially ruinous
