PRONUNCIATION and Saucy Family Scandals

Cardinal Armand Jean Richelieu du Plessis

Jean is the French version of the Biblical name John. Pronounced jhaa (the French way, pull your mouth to the left and gesture).  Du Plessis, which means 'from the district Plessis', is pronounced doo plehsee. His full name, therefore, is pronounced jhaa prehuh doo plehSee. Do you understand now why Jean became a writer - not having to talk to people as much - he has a hard time introducing himself to people.

The last time Jean Prieur du Plessis spoke French was about three hundred years ago - he was the original namesake, the one who abandoned the family's heritage, the district of Plessis in France, along with the castle and the towns. Why? Because he disagreed with France's adoption of Catholicism - he liked the Protestant party. He took the entire Du Plessis family away from France. Moved to South Africa to work for the Dutch as a medical doctor. Today, there are more than fifty thousand Du Plessis in that country. 

Now here's a thing. When Jean Prieur du Plessis took all the family and left France - one young cousin stayed behind. By design, or by accident, we do not know, but what we do know is that he was the effeminate cousin, a gay Du Plessis, named Richelieu Armand Jean, the one who had gonorrhea. Being the sole surviving Du Plessis in Plessis, the king called Richelieu Armand Jean in to make him the bishop of Plessis, as was custom. Well, young, Richelieu Armand Jean charmed the pants off (sorry:) not only the king of France, but also his mother. Soon, the king's mother convinced the king to allow Richelieu Armand Jean to take over several of the king's responsibilities. Not too long it took, for Richelieu Armand Jean to take over and run France for more than a decade. He was good, especially in the diplomatic arena. Made it into the movies too - he was the Cardinal in charge of France when the three Musketeers ran amok. He made it to Canada as well. He founded Quebec, where in the 1930s another duPlessis (Premier Maurice) added more damage to Canada. 

I must conclude this by saying, most of the above comes from the family, passed down from generation to generation. Others, like historians for example, do not necessarily agree with the small detail, here is their version.
