Joseph De Gobineau, born on June 14, 1816 in a Parisian suburb, came from an aristocratic background.  His father was in command of Louis 18thís Imperial guards, and the young Gobineau was attending military school, when the second French revolution unfolded in July 1830.  With his family fortune turning overnight, Joseph was forced to leave the military school and depart for sanctuary in Germany and Switzerland.
