Claude de Loménie–Chambord in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 81 - 82) The colonel came forward, dressed in the blue frock-coat with gold frogging worn by the officers of the Carignan-Salière regiment, adorned with chamois-leather revers on sleeves and collar, and big guilloched buttons. He was a distinguished-looking man of about forty; he wore knee-boots, and his sword at his side was tried with a white sash, which, for a soldier in the field, showed a deteermination to keep his turn-out up to regulation standard. His short pointed beard, a trifle old-fashioned, suited his distinguished face with its fine, handsome features; his tanned cheeks and forehead mede his calm, grey, penetrating eyes look pale in comparison. What struck Angélique about him was above all the gentleness that seemed to emanate from him, like a kind of diffuse, inward light. He was not wearing a wig, but his hair was well cared for.

Claude de Loménie–Chambord in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 107 - 108) The simplicity of his manners and his clear-cut precise gestures went hand in hand with a gentle, winning grace in which Angélique's observant mind could not help seeing the man accostomed to talking with women.
(p. 485 - 486) Angélique was more susceptible to Count Loménie-Chambord's charm than she would admit. He was a gentle and most courageous man, and his appearance gave a true piture of his character. There was nothing false about him. He looked like the officer he was, of soldierly bearing and capable of carrying through any warlike task, while his serious, grey eyes revealed a chivalrous heard. Further acquaintance with him would never be a disappointing experience.
