In 1769 Madame Du Barry received in her service a seven-year-old Punjabi boy sold to Duke Richelieu by an English captain. This boy, nick-named Zamor and re-christened as Louis-Benoît, played an important role in the life of the countess. As his godmother Jeanne happened to be very attached to Louis-Benoît; and since Louis XV’s favorite had no children of her own, the boy’s wardrobe and education received her full attention. As an adult Zamor continued in Du Barry’s service as a governor; but by the time of the French Revolution he joined the Louveciennes Jacobines club and denounced his mistress to the Commission of Public Safety; his testimony at the process of the countess was decisive: he was privy to the information that led to her conviction and execution. As for Zamor’s own death, it was peaceful, in 1820 he died of hypothermia in his unheated Parisian apartment.
