Bertrand Barère de Vieuzac

Born in 1755, died in 1841; elected to the Assembly in 1789, to the Convention in 1792, over which he presided during the trial of Louis XVI., and was a member of the Committee of Public Safety and a Deputy in 1815 during the Hundred Days. Macaulay’s ferocious attack on Barère will be remembered.
