4. Antoine de Lhoyer (1768–1852)
A notable military man, Lhoyer died in poverty and obscurity. But research has revived interest in his music resulting in some modern recordings and additions to the repertoire, especially some excellent guitar duets. He was a Knight of the Order of St. John and a Knight of the Order of St. Louis (pictured).
