Jean-Pierre Delarüe Caron de Beaumarchais (8 December 1944, Rome) is a French bibliographer, a descendant in the female line of Pierre Beaumarchais (whose family took on the name by decree of April 25, 1853).



A former student of the École normale supérieure, agrégé de lettres classiques, Jean-Pierre de Beaumarchais is the author of studies on his ancestor and several dictionaries of writers and French literatures, in collaboration with Daniel Couty and Alain Rey. He also translated from English. Since 2012 he is a member of the Académie des Sciences, Belles-Lettres et Arts de Bordeaux, to which his stepfather also belonged.

He was Philippine de Rothschild's second husband. Their son Julien was born in 1971.
