Emmanuel Taché de la Pagerie is summoned to appear by three descendants of a large family of the nobility of Perche.
Taché de la Pagerie instead of Taché. Is it out of coquetry that the newly elected RN deputy in the 16th constituency of Bouches-du-Rhône added a particle and a prestigious name to his original surname: “Taché”? Probably the homophony between the first party of the Tascher de La Pagerie name and his will have inspired him…
Still, the maneuver is not at all to the taste of the descendants of this very prestigious family from Perche. According to the surname protection procedure that The world was able to consult, they sued the deputy accused of usurpation, elected on Sunday with 88 other members of the RN.
“As long as it was for personal use, that was not a problem, but there, there were leaflets, posters (…). This amalgam (…) triggers prejudice for the family”, explains their lawyer, Maître Pichon the newspaper The world.
Invented descendant of Joséphine de Beauharnais
Among the descendants of the Tascher de la Pagerie, whose full name dates back to the 16th century, a famous empress: Marie-Josèphe Rose Tascher de la Pagerie, better known as Joséphine de Beauharnais, wife of Napoleon I. The RN deputy of his real name, Emmanuel Jean Gérard Taché, “usurps our particle because it is an illustrious name”, is indignant one of the spokespersons for the family with the correspondent in Marseilles of the World.
The new tenant of the Palais Bourbon sweeps away the controversy with the back of his hand and explains that he has been using this name in his passport “for thirty years” and that “it is a name of use declared to the prefecture”. The latter contacted also specified that nothing prevented the elected official from submitting his candidacy under this name.
“I have just been elected and I have no time to waste on this kind of subject”, he evacuates while assuring the World have not yet received any summons to appear.
A former member of the RPR
Social networks, campaign posters, blog, everywhere the deputy RN uses this other name rather than his “Taché”. The descendants of the real Tascher de la Praderie ask him to stop now publicly usurping the surname and ask for a symbolic euro in damages.
A member of the RPR from the age of 20, then of the UMP until 2012, Emmanuel Taché previously participated in Nicolas Sarkozy’s two presidential campaigns: “I voted for him like a good little horse”, explained- he to AFP, just hours before his victory against Nupes. Previously, he served only one elected term. It was in 1995 and 2001 within the municipal council of Palaiseau (Essonne).
