Louisiana Governor. He became a plantation owner and merchant in Point Coupee Parish, and in 1810 he was appointed a Justice of the Peace. A Democratic-Republican, from 1814 to 1816 and 1818 to 1822 he served in the Louisiana House of Representatives. In 1822 he moved to the Louisiana Senate, where he served until 1830. In 1827 he became Senate President, and when Governor Pierre Derbigny died in October 1829, Beauvais became Governor. In January 1830 Beauvais lost his bid for reelection as Senate President, ending his gubernatorial term. He was an unsuccessful candidate for Governor in 1830, and completed his State Senate term in 1831. In 1833 he was appointed to fill an unexpired term as State Senator, serving until 1834. In 1839 Beauvais' financial setbacks resulted in the sale of his property at auction to satisfy his debts, primarily a loan he had taken out to finance his 1830 campaign, and he moved to a New Orleans home owned by his brother in law, where he lived until dying in a yellow fever epidemic. For many years the details of his burial were unknown, but in 2009 researchers reviewed Catholic Archdiocese records, found the entry for his burial, and confirmed the location of his tomb. His first name is sometimes spelled "Armand," and his middle name is sometimes spelled "Julie".
