Napoleon Bonaparte

People had grown tired of the instability and bloodshed of the reign of terror and were ready for something more moderate. By 1795, the republic was gone, and 5 men with business interests had the executive power in France. This new government was called The Directory and was far more conservative than the Jacobin republic had been. It was also ineffectual and the people readily accepted the coup d'etat of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799. The French Revolution was over.
