Gabriel de Büren 1669-1694

Gabriel was the second son of Jean-Charles de Büren (1636-1719) and Dorothée de Wattenwyl (1644-1674). He served the Swiss Guards in Holland under William III Prince of Orange and King on England. His military career seemed promising but would die young at the age of 25.
