Third Republic


the bourgeois democratic regime in France between 1870 and 1940. The Third Republic was proclaimed on Sept. 4,1870, after the fall of the Second Empire. It was legislatively established on Jan. 30, 1875, and fundamental constitutional laws were passed from February to July 1875. A president was made head of state, and a bicameral parliament, to which the government was responsible, was given supreme legislative power. On July 10,1940, when France was defeated in World War II, absolute power was granted to Marshal Pétain, signifying the fall of the Third Republic.
