Étienne Maynon d'Invault

Étienne Maynon d'Invault (born 1721, Paris – 1801, Saint-Germain-en-Laye) was a French statesman.


Son of Vincent Maynon of Invault and Agnes Bouvard Fourqueux, in 1758 he married his cousin Elizabeth Adelaide Bouvard Fourqueux.

He was advisor to the Investigations of the Parliament of Paris in 1741. He was then master of requests (4 March 1747-29 janvier 1766), president of the Grand Council (1753), steward of Picardy in Amiens (August 1754). Appointed State supernumerary October 5, 1766, he became Counselor of State on November 7, 1767.

He was appointed Comptroller General of Finance September 22, 1768, and Minister of State December 10, 1768.

He proposed extending the second Vingtième until 1772, which raised strong remonstrances of the Parliaments and drove Louis XV to hold a lit de justice January 11, 1769 to register the edict.

He used the ordinary expedients, while preparing drastic measures that should be discussed December 19, 1769. The Boards of Finance gathered together, in a committee comprising members of both Councils. Following this meeting, Louis XV decided not to submit the measures envisaged in the expanded Council, which led to his resignation December 19, 1769.
