The French priest, philosophical and political writer Frédéric de La Mennais lived in Saint-Pierre-de-Plesguen. He revolted against Napoleon. Lamennais hailed the Bourbon restoration of 1814, which he witnessed in Paris, because he saw Louis XVIII as a force for religious regeneration. During the Hundred Days, he escaped to London. After the final overthrow of Napoleon in 1815, he returned to Paris.
His real name was Hugues Felicité Robert de Lamennais.
