Pierre Patte, an architect for the Palatine Prince, duke of Zweibrücken, was born in Paris on January 3 1723 and died in Mantes on August 19 1814, “he got especially famous because of the books he wrote about his art, rather than because of his execution works. He had built in Paris the Hôtel Charost, managed the construction of a part of the duke of Zweibrücken’s palace, and of the castle of Jaresbourg, drawn from the model of the Trianon.”
