Pierre Sudreau (13 May 1919 – 22 January 2012) was a French politician. He was born in Paris. His childhood correspondence with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900–1944) helped inspire the title character of the 1943 novel The Little Prince.[4]

He announced his resignation as French Education Minister in October 1962 in protest against a proposal by Charles de Gaulle to amend the constitution.[5][6]
