Jean-Louis Pierrot (1761-1857) was a career officer and general in the Haïtian Army. He became president of Haïti on April 16, 1845. During the first Haïtian Kingdom, Henry I promoted Pierrot to the rank of Lieutenant General in the Army and granted him the hereditary title of Prince. As President of Haïti, he was intended to be a figurehead for the Mulatto ruling class. A failure in that role, he was overthrown in a coup d'etat on March 24, 1846, after attempting reforms in the government. He is known to have had a daughter, Marie Louise Amélia Célestine (Princess Pierrot), who in 1845 married Lieutenant-General Pierre Nord-Alexis, a provincial governor under Emperor Faustin I, and later Haïtian Minister for War between 1867-1869.
