About Georges Danton

  • George Jacques Danton (French: [???? d?~t?~]; 26 October 1759 – 5 April 1794) was a leading figure in the early stages of the French Revolution, in particular as the first president of the Committee of Public Safety.
  • Danton's role in the onset of the Revolution has been disputed; many historians describe him as "the chief force in the overthrow of the French monarchy and the establishment of the First French Republic".He was guillotined by the advocates of revolutionary terror after accusations of venality and leniency toward the enemies of the Revolution.
