"O Liberty, how many crimes are committed in thy name!"

Girondism is an economically capitalist, civically right-unitist, and a culturally-right-wing ideology. He's against the French monarchy and supported the French Revolution, but only during it's earlier stages. Additionally, Girondism believes that democracy should be reformed and that secularism is the way to go. He also seems to oppose populism and authoritarianism.


The Girondins were an informal political party from the time of the French Revolution, mainly consisting of the intelligentsia and the bourgeoisie, initially constituting the right wing of the Jacobins with a program of constitutional monarchy and parliamentary rule with the preservation of economic and religious freedoms.

The Girondists initially advocated a constitutional monarchy and limiting the role of the king to representative functions. As a result of the support they enjoyed among the population, they were given the mission of forming a government by Louis XVI. They were ardent supporters of spreading the revolution throughout Europe, and because of them, France declared war on Austria on April 20, 1792, initiating a long period of wars with successive coalitions. They quickly opted for a republic.

In the new republican reality, Girondins maintained the influence on power and were blamed for defeats in wars and difficult economic situation. The Girondins were especially hated by the sans-culottes, which led to the destruction of the party. The leading representatives of Gironde were arrested, sentenced to death and guillotined. The party ceased to exist, but its surviving representatives took part in the Thermidorian coup.


Girondism believes in a capitalist economy, interventionism,anti-populism, and the creation of a bourgeois aristocracy.

  • Neoconservatism & Third Way - I like you guys as well, though I wish you two would drift more towards the lib-right quadrant of the political compass.
  • Sarkozy - Best contemporary president of my homeland!


  • Thermidorianism - Thanks for avenging me, but your cultural Reactionaryism is despicable.
  • La Plaineism - We were good friends during the initial progression of the Revolution, but he ended up abandoning me for him. At least our successor ended up avenging me later on.
  • Conservative Liberalism - Only good at the international level.
