Notes Laure Junot, Duchess of Abrantès (née Martin de Permond; 6 November 1784 – 7 June 1838) was the wife of French general Jean-Andoche Junot. She was born at Montpellier, the daughter of Charles Martin de Permond and his wife Panoria, to whom during her widowhood the young Napoleon Bonaparte made an offer of marriage—such at least is the version presented by the daughter in her celebrated Memoirs. Her mother, Panoria, was descended from the Comnene family, the last Greek dynasty from the Empire of Trebizond.[1][2] The Martin de Permond family, after various vicissitudes, settled at Paris, and Bonaparte certainly frequented their house a good deal after the downfall of the Jacobin party in Thermidor 1794
