Joachim Murat was a younger son. The law of equal division of property was still in the future, and it was intended that his eldest brother Andr? should inherit the inn of La Bastide and the little farm. The army, the navy, the civil service, were all careers in which there was a poor prospect for the son of a commoner, and still more for a country-bred commoner's son. The nobles and the wealthy townsfolk were the only people who could look for certain promotion and safely prosperous careers in the service of the State in any Of its branches. Probably this was why it was decided that Joachim should be educated for the Church. There the patronage of the Talleyrands would be useful to him. They were helpful from the outset. It was, thanks to their protection that, when he was ten years Old he was given a bourse or scholarship at the college of' Cahors, where he was to make his classical studies in prepara tion for the seminary.
