Decree upon the Term, French Republic.
October 22, 1808.
Duvergier, Lois, XVI, 312
The time and manner in which the idea of the Republic disappeared from French Institutions is a matter of much importance for the comprehension of the method whereby Napoleon built up his power. This document serves to fix the date of its final disappearance; something of the manner in which it was eliminated can be seen from an examination of Constitution of the Year VIII and Consulate for Life.
