* Charles Alexandre de Calonne (1734-1802), Controller-General of France from 1783 to 1787. He was initially very popular when he proposed extensive financial reforms, but was later unfairly blamed for the crown's debt and dismissed.
** "counselor", which may refer to Calonne as well - compare to his portrait
