"In 1815, M. Charles Francois-Bienvenu Myriel was Bishop of D---. He was a man of seventy-five, and had occupied the bishopric of D--- since 1806.
M. Myriel was the son of a counsellor of the Parlement of Aix. His father, intending him to inherit his place, had contracted a marriage form him at the early age of eighteen or twenty.

Charles Myriel, notwithstanding this marriage, had, it was said, been an object of much attention. His person was admirably moulded; although of slight figure, he was elegant and graceful; all the earlier part of his life had been devoted to the world and to its pleasures. The revolution came, events crowded upone each other; the parliamentary families, decimated, hunted, and pursued, were soon dispersed. M. Charles Myriel, on the first outbreak of the revolution emitgrated to Italy. His wife died there of a lung complaint with which she had been long threatened. They had no children. What followed in the fate of M. Myriel? The decay of the old French society, the fall of his own family, the tragic sights of '93, still more fearful, perhaps, to the exlies who beheld them from afar, magnified by fright -- did these arouse in him ideas of renunciation and of solitude? No one could have answered; all that was known was that when he returned from Italy he was a priest."
