Directory Rule of France
The Directory rule of France refers to the rule of the five-member committee from 1795 to 1799. While in rule, the committee worked on eliminating the Jacobin Reign of Terror. The Directory was overthrown by Napolean Bonaparte in the Coup of 18 Brumaire, who replaced it with the Consulate. During the time it lasted, the Directory was in constant wars with many foreign coalitions.
