Jean-Frédéric Phélypeaux, comte de Maurepas ( 1701 – 1781) was a French statesman and Count of Maurepas. Skilled in military and naval strategy, Maurepas enabled the French navy to regain previously lost prestige and France was once again recognized as a maritime power. One way that he improved the French reputation was by focusing on the defense of France's sprawling empire in the New World, especially in the 1730s and 1740s
