ABEL SERVIEN, MARQUIS DE SABLE AND DE BOISDAUPHIN, COMTE DE LA ROCHE-SERVIEN (1593-1659), French diplomat, was born at Grenoble, the son of Antoine Servien, procuratorgeneral of the estates of Dauphine.
Servien lived at Angers or on his estates at Sable until the death of Louis when Mazarin entrusted him with the conduct, conjointly with the comte d'Avaux, of French diplomatic affairs in Germany.
After five years' negotiations, and a bitter quarrel with the comte d'Avaux, which ended in the latter's recall, Servien signed the two treaties of the 24th of October 1648 which were part of the general peace of Westphalia.
Servien left an important and voluminous correspondence.
