Description
Francois-Noël Babeuf, who used the name Gracchus Babeuf (1760-1797), was a French political journalist and agitator who, with his Jacobin allies, was a founder of the "Conspiracy of the Equals". He was arrested, tried, convicted and executed with the guillotine on May 27, 1797. The word "Communist" was coined for the followers of Babeuf.
