Jacobin Club - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1807 words)
The name "Jacobins", given in France to the Dominicans (because their first house in Paris was in the Rue St Jacques), was first applied to the club in ridicule by its enemies.
The Jacobin Club was closed after the fall of Robespierre on 9 Thermidor of the year III (July 29, 1794) and some of its members were executed.
The last attempt to reorganise Jacobin adherents was the foundation of the Réunion d'amis de l'égalité et de la liberté, in July 1799, which had its headquarters in the Salle du Manège of the Tuileries, and was thus known as the Club du Manège.
