Julietta de Meyer's father, the Count Jules de Meyer, had just retired his duties as commander of the Fribourg Police Department (Switzerland).  Son of Antoine Meyer, pontifical Swiss guard under Greogry XVI, captain Jules Meyer had replaced his father in 1852 at 23 years old, under the banner of the King-Pope, Pius IX, at the Holy See.  He became a valiant soldier who distinguished himself during numerous wars that preceded the fall of the Pontifical State in 1870.  A famous encounter with Cairoli's  "Garibaldi fighters" earned Captain Meyer in 1867 his promotion to "Commander" and the medal of the "Order of Pius IX."  (Personal souvenirs of Count Jules de Meyer - Episode of the Garibaldi campaign against the Holy See - 1867.   Leo XIII bestowed the gratitude of the Church by conferring upon him the hereditary title of "Count."
