Rules: The Directory "le Directoire" (1795-1799)

The Directory was a five-member committee which governed France from November 1795, when it replaced the Committee of Public Safety , until it was overthrown by Napoleon Bonaparte in the Coup of 18 Brumaire (8-9 November 1799) and replaced by the Consulate. It gave its name to the final four years of the French Revolution.
