List of the presidents of the French senate

the French senate is the upper house of the parliament. A president manages it. Even if there were in first as in the second empire senates, then less a legislative force was, rather an advisory function given - similar to them the model of the Roman senate.

France made its first experience with an upper house under the board of directors from 1795 to 1799, when the advice of the oldest ones with its 250 members placed the upper chamber. With the restoration in the year 1814 the new chamber of the high aristocracy was justified, the Model stood for the British House OF lord. First only the high hereditary aristocracy sat in it, but in the course of the July revolution of 1830 it a body for which one to lifetime to appoint became.

The second republic returned after 1848 to an a chamber system. Briefly after beginning of the third republic a senate was installed as upper chamber. In the fourth republic the senate in advice of the republic was renamed, but its function remained to a large extent the same. With the fifth republic the traditional name senate was finally restored.

The president of the senate has further important function after the condition of the fifth republic apart from the presidency over the upper house of the parliament still another: In case of the resignation or the death of the president he will be held transition president of the republic to a new choice can.
