(? -1358) was provost of the merchants of Paris, a title roughly equivalent to mayor of Paris today. He led a revolt against the dauphin Charles. Being the leader of the third Estate, the commoners, he forced the promulgation of a great edict of reform. The Dauphin accepted, but the imprisoned King John the Good, forbade to put it into effect. After murdering two noblemen, Etienne lost the support of the second Estate (the nobility) and was killed himself during an uproar in 1358.
