Antoine Léon Philippe Blondel was born in Paris on 16 November 1795. He followed an administrative career.[1] During the July Monarchy he was made a knight of the Legion of Honour on 1 January 1834, officer on 12 March 1837 and commander on 14 April 1844. In 1844 he was a counselor of state and director general of the forest administration.[2]

On 5 March 1866 he entered the imperial senate, where he sat until 4 September 1870 among the most devoted supporters of the regime. He died in Paris on 27 April 1886 at the age of 90.[1]
