Abstract:

"Paul François Jean Nicolas, vicomte de Barras (30 June 1755 ? 29 January 1829) was a French politician of the French Revolution, and the main executive leader of the Directory regime of 1795?1799....Owing to his intimate relations with Joséphine de Beauharnais, Barras helped to facilitate a marriage between her and Bonaparte. Some of his contemporaries alleged that this was the reason behind Barras' nomination of Bonaparte to the command of the army of Italy early in the year 1796. Bonaparte's success gave to the Directory an unprecedented stability, and when, in the summer of 1797, the royalist and surviving Girondist opposition again met the government with resistance, Bonaparte sent General Augereau, a Jacobin, to repress their movement in the Coup of 18 Fructidor (4 September 1797)."--Wikipedia.
