Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Brissot was a leader of the Girondins, a moderate bourgeois faction that was against the radical-democratic Jacobins ideas during the French Revolution. They voted to send Louis XVI to death but on the other hand attempted to save him; they made committees and tribunals but were powerless to control them. Brissot was again in favor of war against Austria and Great Britain; he considered conflicts were necessary propaganda for the revolution. The National Constituent Assembly also established the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, which was based on the US Declaration of Independence. The Assembly would be in power until 1791 when the constitution was finally completed. The 1791 Constitution turned France into a constitutional monarchy. After all the conflict Louis XVI put up with, he was soon to be executed and Bonaparte had to jump in and take charge. During the revolution, Napoleon came up with a code that forbade privileges based on birth, allowed freedom of religion, and specified that government jobs should go to the most qualified. This was called the Napoleonic Code. January 15, 1754 to October 31, 1793 The Girondins were not a tight political party but rather regrouped loosely together many deputies with similar views. In spite of their desire tog et rid the country of the violence inspired by the Jacobin "Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily." However, after a disastrous French invasion of Russia in 1812, Napoleon abdicated the throne two years later and was exiled to the island of Elba. In 1815, he briefly returned to power in his Hundred Days campaign. After a crushing defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, he abdicated once again and was exiled to the remote island of Saint Helena, where he died at 51.
