Étienne-Jacques-Joseph-Alexandre_MacDonald, Duke of Taranto was a male anthropomorphic duck.


A member of the branch of the clan MacDonald whose raucousness had forced to flee in exile to France, Étienne-Jacques-Joseph-Alexandre MacDonald was born in Sancerre. After enlisting in the Revolutionary armies, he climbed through the ranks quickly, and continued fighting in Napoleon's armies, becoming, at one point, governor of Rome and Duke of Taranto. After Napoleon's abdication, he offered his services to the Bourbons, and was loyal enough to them that he was able to enjoy a long, comfortable and peaceful retirement thanks to their kindness.

Behind the scenesEdit

Duke MacDonald appears in the 1975 story The Famous Donalds. He is based on the historical Étienne Macdonald.
