Voting in Toulouse, 1793–1815

Title

Voting in Toulouse, 1793–1815

Description

Figures compiled by the historian Martyn Lyons for the large southwestern city of Toulouse show that Napoleon enjoyed considerable support in 1802 when he declared himself Consul for Life but that his support eroded over time. In Toulouse, a city with a strong Jacobin past, the declaration of the Empire in 1804 garnered no more support than the Jacobin Republic had in the difficult days of 1793.
