(1702 - 1774)

Jean-Pierre Guignon was a notorious character. He was well-known for lively episodes as a rascal and a mercenary political schemer. The last to hold the title Roy des Violons, he was forced to abdicate because his colleagues despised him so much. It is possible that Guignon was responsible for the murder of his great contemporary Jean-Marie Leclair. It should be added that Guignon might have been guilty of gross plagiarism. There is ample proof that he was not the author of compositions attributed to him.
