After Napoleon's second abdication, Suchet attempted to help the now fugitive Marshal Ney, offering Ney money, a passport, and an escort despite the political risks. Unfortunately, Ney refused and allowed himself to be captured, and Suchet was struck from the list of peers of France by the returning Bourbons. Forcibly retired, he lived near Marseilles until his death in 1826. So esteemed was he, that upon learning of his death, Spanish priests in Saragossa held a mass in remembrance of him.
