The French Republican calendar
was created and implemented during the French Revolution,
and used by the French government for about 12 years from
late 1793 to 1805. The revolutionary system was designed in
part to remove all religious and royalist influences from
the calendar, and was part of a larger attempt at
decimalisation in France. It was used in government records
in France and other areas under French rule, including Belgium,
and parts of the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Malta,
