Anne Jules de Noailles, 2nd Duke of Noailles (5 February 1650 – 2 October 1708) was one of the chief generals of France towards the end of the reign of Louis XIV, and, after raising the regiment of Noailles in 1689, he commanded in Spain during both the War of the Grand Alliance and the War of the Spanish Succession, and was made marshal of France in 1693.[1]


Son of Anne de Noailles and his wife, Louise Boyer, he acceded to the title of duc de Noailles on his father's death in 1678.[1] He was married to Marie-Françoise de Bournonville,[2] with whom he had children. Adrien-Maurice, his eldest surviving son, succeeded him upon his death. One of his daughters, Marie Victoire, married one of King Louis XIV's illegitimate sons, the Comte de Toulouse.
