In this chapter biographical details of Andrew Michael Ramsay’s life are sketched while outlining his significant relationships. It charts his journey from Scotland to France on a search for spiritual truth that led him to Fénelon. His associations in France, Scotland and Europe assisted his obtaining the role as editor of Fénelon’s private papers and works. This position acted as a catalyst for both Ramsay’s objectives as a political thinker and as a Jacobite, while his connection with the legacy of Fénelon ensured personal success. But it helped to create a distorted legacy for Fénelon’s political principles as Ramsay manipulated them for his own ends and the Jacobite cause.
