Charles Le Gué (1724-1792) was one of the Jesuits who were killed when the French Revolution turned into a rabid anti-Catholic persecution. Father Le Gué (1724-1792) served as prefect of students at the school of Louis le Grand. When the French Jesuits were suppressed, he devoted himself to preaching and gave the 1783 Lenten series before the royal court in Versailles. He was one of the co-founders of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a congregation in imitation of the suppressed Society of Jesus.
