Gondrin was born in Versailles, the son of Louis Antoine de Pardaillan de Gondrin, duc d'Antin, and grandson of Madame de Montespan. He was a doctor of theology and canon of Paris and of Strasbourg. He became duke-bishop of Langres and Peer of France in 1724. He was elected an honorary member of the Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres in 1720 and, without having ever written a single work, a member of the Académie française in 1725.
