Bourdondel Oise

Bourdon de l'Oise, Francois Louis (born about 1750, died 1797), a French revolutionist, and member of the Convention. He was born, near Compiegne, of a family of farmers, and having read for the bar, became an agent to the parliament of Paris. He threw himself with enthusiasm into the revolutionary cause, joined in the attack on the Tuileries, and was sent to the Convention by the department of the Oise, whose name he adopted. He voted for the death, without respite or appeal, of the king, and had a share in the fall of the Girondins. Shortly afterwards he fell out with Robespierre, who had him excluded from the Jacobins. From this moment he became more and more anti-revolutionist, and, as a member of the Council of Five Hundred, gave such offence to those in power that he was banished by the Directory to Guiana, where he soon died. He was accused of having made a fortune by trafficking in assignats and national property.
