MONLUC, or Montluc, the name of a French family.
MONTLUC (or MoNLuc), [[Blaise De Lassaran-Massencome, Seigneur De]] (c. 1 5 02 - 1 577), marshal of France, was born about 1502, at the family seat near Condom in the modern department of Gers.
When the religious wars broke out in France, Montluc, a staunch royalist, held Guyenne for the king.
Montluc's eminence above other soldiers of his day is due to his Commentaires de Messire Blaise de Montluc (Bordeaux, 1592), in which he described his fifty years of service (1521-1574).
