LOYAUTE, Anne Philippe Dieudonne de (lo-yo-tay), French soldier, born in Metz in 1750; died in La Fleche in 1830. He enlisted in the army when scarcely eleven years old, and served in Germany in 1761-'3. He was commissioned lieutenant in 1764, and captain in 1776, when he came to this country with 50 cannon and 10,000 muskets from the French government. He served during the whole of the war for independence as inspector-general of the artillery of the army and fortifications of Virginia, and was rewarded by Louis XVI. with the cross of Saint Louis in 1784. He emigrated in 1790, and served in the army of Con-de. In an attempt to capture Strasburg, 15 November, 1791, he fell a prisoner, but escaped to England in 1792, and in 1796 was appointed by the British government commander of the artillery in Santo Domingo, and a few months later general inspector of the British army in the island. He afforded valuable aid to the invaders, and but for him it is hardly probable that the English could have maintained their hold in the colony. After 1798 he remained in Santo Domingo as a private citizen, returning to France in 1802. He served during the Russian campaign in 1812-'13, and in 1825 became director of the military school of La Fleche. He published "Memoires pour servir a l'histoire de l'occupation Anglaise de File de Saint Domingue" (2 vols., Paris, 1824).
