The Coup of 18 Fructidor, was a seizure of power by members of the French Directory on 4 September 1797 whilst their opponents, the Royalists, were gaining strength. The Directory called upon Napoleon Bonaparte to send a general to command troops guarding the legislature at the Tuileries. On 18 Fructidor, year V (Sept. 4, 1797), General Pierre-François-Charles Augereau, commanding the troops, purged more than 130 royalists and counter-revolutionaries from the Corps Législatif; and many deputies, journalists, nonjuring priests, and other individuals, including the director, the marquis de Barthélemy, were deported to Guiana in South America. The royalists were once more thwarted but the republican constitution itself was also fatally weakened. The coup still further confirmed the new power of the army and thus went far in preparing the way for the military despotism of Napoleon.
