Jean Marie Collot d'Herbois
Birth: Jun. 19, 1749
Death: Jan. 7, 1796

French Revolutionary Leader. Born in Paris, France, He was originally an actor and playwright. He became a member of the Jacobin club and published the Almanach du Père Gérard (1791), which was criticized for its royalist tinge, although its patriotism won a competition sponsored by the Jacobins. He was a member of the revolutionary Commune of Paris and his politics became increasingly militant. Elected to the National Convention (September, 1792), he became identified as a supporter of Jacques René Hébert and favored the elimination of the Girondists. He proposed the draft of law about abolition of monarchy to National Convention, which was approved. In September, 1793, he was appointed to the Committee of Public Safety, which suppressed the counterrevolutionary attempts at Lyons in a blood bath. Although he turned against Robespierre on 9 Thermidor (July 27, 1794), he fell in the Thermidorian reaction. His close friends in the new government saved him from the guillotine but not from being deported to French Guiana, where he died of yellow fever. (bio by: M M)
