RICHEPANSE, Antoine (reesh-pahns), French soldier, born in Metz, 25 March, 1770; died in Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, 8 September, 1803. He was a sergeant at the beginning of the French revolution, and soon rose by his valor to high rank. He was appointed in 1802 captain-general of the French possessions in South America, and, landing in Guadeloupe, forced the entrance of Pointe Pitre, compelled the northern provinces to make their submission, and, after defeating Magloire Pelage (q. v.), restored the exiled governor, Lacrosse (q. v.). After suppressing a new insurrection, and compelling the rest of the insurgents to make their submission at Anglemont, he prepared to pass to Santo Domingo to co-operate in the conquest of the island, when he died of yellow fever. Richepanse was held in high esteem by Napoleon, who gave his name to a street in Paris.
