Soldier, lothario, filibuster: General Jean Joseph Amable Humbert

"General Jean Joseph Amable Humbert is one of those larger than life characters thrown up by the French Revolution. A passionate republican who led a failed invasion of Ireland, a ladiesí man who romanced Napoleonís sister, an aide to Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans, a would-be invader of Mexico, and an associate of the pirates Laffite Ė there are so many tales about Humbert that itís hard to separate fact from fiction. This, as best I can determine, is his story."
