Montgolfier Brothers

October 6, 2012 by  

Montgolfier Brothers, Joseph-Michel Montgolfier (26 August 1740 – 26 June 1810) and Jacques-?tienne Montgolfier (6 January 1745 – 2 August 1799) were the inventors of the Montgolfière-style hot air balloon, globe aérostatique. The brothers succeeded in launching the first manned ascent, carrying ?tienne into the sky.

Later, in December 1783, in recognition of their achievement, their father Pierre was elevated to the nobility and the hereditary appellation of de Montgolfier by King Louis XVI of France.
