who were the presidents of the French Tribunate from 1799 to 1807? the French wiki only has an undated list of names (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribunat):

  • Pierre Daunou
  • Jean-Nicolas Démeunier
  • Jean Bérenger
  • Gabriel Malès
  • François de Jaucourt
  • Félix de Beaujour
  • Pierre-François Duchesne
  • Perhaps the presidency was annually rotating? Then it might be the case that you have a chronological list on your hands actually. Apr 20, 2015 at 20:33
  • IIRC the Tribunate presidency was supposed to run for two years.

Léon Muel, the source for the full list of the members of the Tribunat in the Wikipedia article, provides a list of the presidents pp. 209-10.

  • The links are permalinks to the French National Library. I'm aware of the problem.I thought of extracting the information and publish in another format but the images were not uploading and for text format it would take too much time (if needed I can do it). Jul 27, 2015 at 16:03
  • I find screenshots a convenient way to grab images from online books like these

  • I tried. I wanted to have the information directly in the answer (plus the links). I downloaded the PDF, made the screenshots of the two pages, put them in one image. Saved in PNG. Error uploading. Saved in JPG. Error uploading. And the links are permalinks. If the French National Library goes on, no problem... And I think I answered the question :) Jul 27, 2015 at 16:28
