Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier de La Fayette, Marquis de La Fayette, popularly known as ‘Lafayette’ in history, was a French aristocrat and a military officer. He fought in the American Revolution and was a leader of the Garde nationale during the time of French Revolution. After serving as a major-general in the Continental Army under George Washington, Lafayette returned back to France as a hero and proved to be the most important element in facilitating business and trade ties between America and France. He was against slave trade and believed in emancipation and liberation of all human beings, which was the issue that he addressed with the House of Delegates in the United States, for which he received much admiration. He was appointed commander-in-chief of the Garde nationale in response to growing violence in France during French Revolution and during Austrian attacks, he was captured by the Austrians but ultimately released after 5 years. During France's July Revolution of 1830, Lafayette refused the recommendation to become the French dictator - instead he supported Louis-Philippe's bid as a constitutional monarch. For his great services to both France and the United States, he is known as ‘The Hero of the Two Worlds’. America honored him by naming many monuments and cities throughout the United States after him.
