Leaders character such as Mounier, Barnave, analysed by historians.Some others less known contribute in the same manner to this crucial moment of history of France. Amongst Grenoble's nobility of the sword, some choose to enroll along side the third estate. Nicolas-François Langon is one of them. He's nonetheless struck by the evolutions of a society he has always known, coerced by checs and a permanent hostility from the republic towards his peers.
