Administrative/Biographical history:

The first French republic was declared on 21 September 1792 as a result of the French Revolution and the abolition of the French monarchy. Republican government lasted until the establishment of the First French Empire in 1804. One of the republic's leaders in its latter stage was Napoleon Bonaparte, who was First Consul from 1799 to 1804, when he ended the republic by declaring himself Emperor Napoleon I. The Republic is often divided up into the following eras: the National Convention, 1792-1795; the Directory, 1795-1799; the Consulate, 1799-1804.
