Billaud-Varennes, Jean Nicolas (17561819)

Billaud-Varennes, Jean Nicolas, “a grim, resolute, unrepentant” member of the Jacobin Club; egged on the mob during the September massacres in the name of liberty; was president of the Convention; assisted at the fall of Robespierre, but could not avert his own; was deported to Surinam, and content to die there rather than return to France, which Bonaparte made him free to do; died at Port-au-Prince (17561819).
