The House of Talleyrand-Périgord was a French noble house. A well-known member of this family was Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord (1754-1838), who achieved distinction as a French statesman and diplomat. The family name became extinct in 2003 upon the death of Violette de Talleyrand-Périgord.

Origins

A cadet branch of the family of sovereign counts of Périgord, they took their name from the estate of Périgord owned by these counts, and date back to Boso I, count of la Marche. The first to have borne this name was Hélie de Talleyrand, who lived around 1100.

Their motto was "Re que Diou" ("Nothing But God"): their ancestor was one of the great men of the kingdom of France and participated in the election of Hugh Capet as king of France. An anecdote reports that Capet asked Boson "Mais qui donc t'as fait comte ?" ("But who then made thee a count?") to which he replied "Ceux là même qui t'ont fait Roi" ("The same ones who made thee King"). The Périgords thus considered themselves to be the equals of kings.
