Chamber of Deputies (France)
The Chamber of Deputies ( Chambre des députés ) was one of the two legislative parliamentary chambers of the restored monarchy (1814-1830), the July monarchy (1830-1848) and the French Third Republic (1871-1940). In between were the so-called February Revolution restored republic ( correspondingly Second Republic ) of 1848 with Louis Napoléon as President, then the Second Empire from 1852–1870 with him as Emperor Napoleon III , until his deposition after the defeat in the Franco-German War (1870/71).
The Chamber of Deputies was elected by universal and direct elections every four years . It had 565 members, including six from Algeria and ten from the colonies . All French men had the active right to vote from 21 years of age and passive voting rights from 25 years of age. From 1885 onwards, each department chose the number of deputies that it was entitled to based on its population.
The National Assembly was the successor to the Chamber of Deputies in the Constitution of the Fourth Republic .
