A Conversation for The French Republican Calendar

Years occuring before the revolution

How does the calendar distinguish between years before and after the republic? For example, how would one refer to the year Sept 1791 - Sept 1792?

'Year I before the rebublic'/'Année I avant la république', perhaps?

I would be grateful for an answer, as it means that I can provide quite a good reference to this entry in my entry on the 'Common Era' (A2972405) in Peer Review.

Excellent entry, by the way smiley - smiley

Hi, smiley - smiley

I'm afraid I don't have an easy answer to that one... off the top of my head I'd say they might have referred to the year xxxx of the Ancien Regime, but that's a pure guess.

I don't recall seeing the question mentioned in any of the stuff that I read when researching the article, or at any other time. sorry bout that.

anyway, ta for reading and commenting, smiley - ok
