Jacques Goulart (1580 - 1622) was a Swiss cartographer, whose map of Lake Geneva would provide the basis for the maps of that lake and its surrounds produced by Hondius, Blaeu and Jansson. It is tempting to surmise that he might be related to the French Reformed theologian Simon Goulart (1543 - 1628) but the genealogies of neither man are complete. We know nothing of his background, and his superb map of Lake Geneva appears to be his sole cartographic contribution. Some biographers also credit Jacques as a theologian, but we can find no published work by the man to support this.
