About Noël Édouard, vicomte de Curières de Castelnau

  • Noël Édouard Marie Joseph, Vicomte de Curières de Castelnau (24 December 1851 – 19 March 1944) was a French general in World War I.
  • He represented a militant French Catholic element in the French Army, and later headed the Fédération Nationale Catholique, a short-lived movement (1924-1944) which espoused a socio-religious political ideology, driven by conservative Catholic dogma. Despite his significant achievements during the war, he was never named Marshal of France, perhaps owing to his staunch Catholicism, his consistent anti-semitic posture regarding the Dreyfus Affair, and the emerging dominance of a more secular and egalitarian mood in France after the Armistice.
